A humorous postcard that might be better hidden in a book for all eternity. Oh! and there’s a note on the back…

Finders Keepers 11

27 February 2016

Look at this beautiful scene! One of my favourite finds in books is old post cards.

This one is so beautiful. It's an odd size, too.

Especially if there’s a letter to read on the other side. This one was sent in 1913.

Why was it such a hard pull? Was Tanner operating a railway jigger (that’s only half a joke)? Or was this an emotional pull?

Is this a descendant of ‘The Falcon’, this E Tanner?

Did Tanner live in Carberry, or was the little village another stop on a longer journey?

So many questions…
