As Soon As I Have Some Spare Time


Postmarked 2 December 1907
Southold, NY

I didn't have time to write yesterday as I went up to Frances but will write as soon as I have some spare time. Hope you arrived home safe after all. -- BE
I wish I knew more about this postcard. While the clogs are an undeniable clue, the back of the postcard proves that the image's origin is Dutch. Also on the back of the postcard, you have POSTCARD translated into almost twenty different languages!

As messages go, this one is fairly run of the mill, though I wonder what led the sender to hope Frank got home safe "after all" - after all what? These are the mysteries that make vintage postcards so fun!

Thanks to Beth at The Best Hearts Are Crunchy for hosting Postcard Friendship Friday!

I have become more interested in the message on back since starting a blog. My latest mystery was about a possible romantic happening on Brack St & Rat.

This could have a possibly romantic bent to it, if choose to look at it that way. and why not? :)
