The message on this postcard of the Rustic Bridge and Pavilion in Lester Park is dated Jan. 21, 1910 — 110 years ago today — and postmarked Jan. 22. The sender’s name isn’t easy to read, but the recipient is Henry Seeam of Rice Lake, Wis.
Best attempt at deciphering the handwriting:
1-21-1910. Dear Hank: We are here and like all fine. When does [?] work? Or who else? There’s a nice place to work in so you can come and see. Our baby is sick. Where did Rubyor or what his name is work up here? Write me a Soo Line letter so I won’t get homesick. We live next door to M.C. Church so you had better call soon. #312 W. 3rd St.
The signoff name looks something like S.R. Sather.
