Below is a curious message I found on the back of an 1908 antique bathing beauty postcard. It reads:
be sure and send my coat when you send my machine, got your letter yesterday. Will write later
What I’m curious about is the type of machine Anna wants sent thru the mail. The time period and gender of the sender suggests perhaps a sewing machine. However, peddle sewing machines were quite large. Was the post office in 1908 equipped to mail an item the size and weight of a sewing machine?
Could there be another machine small enough to mail thru the post office? What do you think?
Be sure to stop back on August 16th when I share an exciting find for my personal postcard collection.
