Wilson Roe, Harrington Delaware

On August 22, 1911, somebody in Atlantic City New Jersey sent this postcard to Mr. Wilson Roe in Harrington DE. It was 1911, so this couldn't have been too naughty, right? Frankly, I have no idea what it meant. The postcard must have been printed prior to 1907 because the reverse is undivided, a practice that stopped around that time.

The old post card below was mailed from Felton Delaware on February 21, 1911 by M. S. Melvin and it was sent to Mrs. Ira Roe of Harrington DE. Mrs. Melvin talks about her plans for coming down on the train for the funeral.

This Christmas postcard was sent to Lina Roe (could be Tina Roe) in Harrington Delaware. The sender was Rachel Cohee in Brooklyn New York, and the card is postmarked December 1910. Bring back the Christmas Postcard. I like the idea.

See another Roe postcard on an earlier posting from July 26th.
