This postcard was mailed July 31, 1911 — 110 years ago today — to Miss Emma Perkins of Cleveland, Ohio. It shows what is today known as Minnesota Slip, where the William A. Irvin is docked. At right is the headquarters of Marshall-Wells Hardware Company, one of the world’s largest hardware wholesalers a century ago.
Dear Miss Perkins,
We are here on the Stmr. M. A. Bradley and are enjoying our trip so much. Have not been seasick yet! Hope you are enjoying your vacation “whole heaps.”
Sincerely, Gertrude MS Myler
