Who Were They?

Lost and forgotten photos from the past

House in the woods

House in the woods

This Christmas card looks a bit like a college graduation announcement, with that circular image and the old English font, but in fact it is a Christmas greeting. The picture features a small house set back in the woods, surrounded by snow. The greeting is:

To greet you with all kind thoughts / and good wishes for / Christmas and the New Year

and it was signed

Your old friend

Mattie Knight

68 So Clarkson

    Any guess for about what year it might be?

    I’m not saying this is “her” but you might find it interesting…

    I found a “68 So Clarkson” street in Denver. Perhaps this card was with the later card that seems it might have come from there?

      Many of these seem to be centered in Colorado. Makes me wonder how they came to be in California.
