Today’s Friday Flashback comes courtesy of Seth Schachter’s extensive postcard collection.
This 1909 scene looks vaguely familiar:
Is it the Gault house and barn on South Compo?
The only hint is that it belonged to Thomas Turner.
Here’s the back of the postcard:
“Passive-aggressive” may not have been coined 113 years ago, but the phrase is an apt description of the message:
Well, your [sic] a great one why don’t you answer every one of my postals. I sent you two or three and you sent me one.
Went to Danbury yesterday to Pomona Grange.
And that’s that.
Except for these mysteries: Who was Mr. Archibald Freeborn, at P.O. Box R?
And why was someone in Westport writing to someone in Lombard, Montana?
