Excuse Haste and Bad Pen

Excuse Haste and Bad Pen (834)


Poor Miss Freda never received her postcard!

The "excuse haste and bad pen" caption with a group of pigs seems to be a common motif in early postcards. When I tried (unsuccessfully) to find information on this particular card, a few other variants came up in the search.

Cardcow has a similar card that was postmarked in 1907, which may gives clues to the date of this particular postcard. I'm really more interested in how cute (and clean!) the pigs are.

Cute card! Funny that the "bad pen" of the sender prevented the sending of the card, I assume.
