What it is:

Real photo postcard measuring 5.5 x 3.5 inches.

What I know about it:

An embossed photographer’s stamp in the lower right is from Latimer of Flushing, Michigan.  The paper manufacturer’s markings (AZO, four triangles pointing up) give it a date range of 1904-1918.


I’m not really sure what her pose is supposed to represent.  (I’m assuming that’s a girl.)  She almost looks like she’s leaning on those flowers like she’s leaning on the bar in a tavern.  I’m guessing the photographer just caught her midway through a moment of silliness.  In any case, it’s an interesting look at an old homestead, and that’s quite a crop of blooms.
