I-18--#479po - A very pretty photo postcard (popular in the early 1900s) of a beautiful young lady holding roses with a longing look in her eyes - the sentiment reads, "Wish you were here". This sepia tone with matte finish photo shows the number 19 at the bottom front with some copyright information that is not clear to read but I believe it says, "Rochester Photo Press". The divided back does have a handwritten message & address in pencil with a one cent postage stamp and postal date of 1914. On the back left of the card is probably the same information that you cannot read on the front, "No. 19 Genuine Photograph made in the United States, Copyrighted by Rochester Photo Press, Rochester, NY, USA". The handwritten message (I've shown in close up turned so it can be read) could be interpreted as a bit naughty for the day, reading, "I am going to try to go to the fair today sometime. I wish you were here I could enjoy myself. Dear please be good for I don't want to." A charming romantic lady card to frame or add to your lady postcard collection. See condition details below>
