Unknown Delaware Girl


Newark Delaware Posted by Picasa

This real photo postcard was published by Ed Herberner, a Newark Delaware photographer. The photograph features a young girl sitting on a tricycle, in her "Sunday Best". She is holding a really large cat. Please... if you recognize this little girl, leave a comment.

The photographer, Edward Herberner, was one of the pioneers of the postcard business according to the Newark Post of February 9, 1910. Mr. Herberner operated a Post Card and Music Shop in Newark and, his trademark “Best Series” postcards featured typical Newark scenes and scenes and people from Lower Delaware as well, including Clayton in Kent County and Greenwood in Sussex County.
