The message on the back of this 113-year-old postcard reads:
This not a very good picture of Jerry but you can tell what he looks like. -KM
The card was mailed from Duluth to Brodhead, Wis. on Feb. 8, 1911. Postcards with divided backs were introduced in 1907. Consumers could get their own film developed onto postcard backs or develop it themselves onto pre-printed postcard photo paper.
KM, don’t be so hard on yourself. Photographing a black dog is never easy and we can still tell what he looks like more than a century later. Good boy, Jerry.
