A Penny Post Card

As a 14 year-old girl, my Mother sent this card to her Uncle Fred Turner in Columbus, Nebraska in February, 1915. Her message was, “Hello Uncle Fred, how are you? I thought I would answer your card. Dorothy and I were glad to hear from you. Well, I guess I will close. Write soon. From Florence. (And she added) This is not a very pretty card but I thought it would do this time.” Interestingly, Fred never married nor did Dorothy and they lived together, even operated a child care business during their later years.
