Hello friends, followers, and visitors. Here at John's Island we like to celebrate the seasons. It's hard to say, but perhaps Fall is our favorite. S. S. Porter did a good job of capturing the essence of the seasons back in 1906 when he published postcards like the one above. For those of you who live in parts of the world where there is only one season (weather-wise) there are times when I admire you, but most of the time I think you're missing something.
Back in 1906 things were a bit less complicated and, apparently, it was easy to send Marie this card with only her name, town, and state, and, oh-by-the-way, Rural Route #1. Wish the stamp was still there, but it is gone. The price was right for delivery though: one cent in the US.
We extend to all of you wishes for a fine Fall.
