The date of the written message on this relic appears to be either Dec. 2 or 3, 1905. It is postmarked from Duluth on Dec. 5 and arrived in St. Paul the next day.
Someone named Gertrude has written the following to Ellen Giltinan, who is likely her sister:
My dearest Ellen,
There is a very good picture of what happens here. The house above X is Craggencroft I guess. Does it look natural to you? The car is as empty as usual. Love to you and mother.
The X on the card is intended to show a structure thought to be the Craggencroft School for Young Ladies, or Hardy Hall, which was located at 2000 Woodland Ave. It was dismantled in 1907 and parts of it were used to build three homes in that location.
