12/4 - Mystery postcard - Vince Gratton
I have recently acquired a bunch of old postcards. They are mostly Ontario Canada cards. Although the majority are marked as to their origin, there are some which are photo type cards and appear to be all from the same area based on were they were placed in these old albums. I have attached a copy of one and it appears to be two lake boat freighters under construction. As these cards were for the most part from the early years of the 20th century, I'm thinking 1910 or so and perhaps Lake Superior area. Please post answers on the Information Search page under the subject "Mystery Postcard".
