This nice card is
typical of a type sold everywhere during the glorious postcard
decade of 1910-20. People went nuts over “postals” in that decade,
using them like Instant Messaging—look on the back of one, and
chances are it was merely sent across town. Lovely ladies were a
frequent subject; for instance, this mass produced glamor shot of
one Rita Zucchetto.
However, check the message on this generic card, mailed from Norway
to Portland, OR in 1913.
back to Miss Helene Lewis of Portland tries to rouse the green-eyed
monster by suggesting that he has become personally acquainted with
the model seen on the card. Why? The last two lines of the message
make it all clear!
