Greetings from Detroit – 1909


Greetings from Detroit [hand lettered in sparkle paint] .   Made in Germany.

No post mark.  No address.  Appears to not have been mailed.

“Detroit 6/23-’09   Friend:  Will send you a card at last.  Was glad to receive yours.  Am working hard.  Hope you are to.  L.W. [Lee Weaver]”

Not sure if this was a card that had been intended for Grandma Florence [Koontz] or someone else.   The L.W. is definitely, Grandpa Lee Weaver – his style of penmanship was already establishing in 1909 at age 16.
