Harry Walker, Clarksburg WV

Meet Mr. Harry Walker of Clarksburg West Virginia. Here he is on this old, undivided-back, Real Photo Post Card, most likely snapped sometime between 1901 and 1907. Mr. Walker sent this to his cousin, Mr. W. S. Morris (probably W. Smith Morris) in Millville New Jersey with a little note on the front. Before 1907, the back of the post card was reserved just for the address. Many of these postcards left some white space on the front for the sender to write their message. This card was never postmarked, so it's likely that Harry inserted it into a letter to Cousin "Smith".
