Saginaw St., Pontiac, Michigan – 1911


2344, Saginaw Street, looking North, Pontiac, Michigan.  9014.

Post marked Redford, Mich.  Jul 6, 1911.  Addressed to Mr. Lee Weaver, 94 Tireman Ave., Detroit, Michigan.

“Dear Cousin:  Suppose you had a dandy time the fourth. I do is, picked berries from 7:30 a.m. to 8: p.m.  We all went down to Justin’s [Justin Rosenthral Jenks, Lee and Estelle’s cousin, and son of Leman Case Jenks, the older brother of Esther Jenks Lee] and had ice cream.  Didn’t have very much.  Only 5 gals for 25!  All are well.  I am going over to pick berries today. Estelle [Wright]”

Not sure if Estelle was complaining about having to spend the day picking berries or bragging about the ice cream feast at Justin’s.
