Olympic Mountains from Seattle -- 1908


Card # 1489 -- View of the Olympic Mountains, Puget Sound, Washington, from Seattle.


Although the stamp is missing, the postmark is Hillyard, Washington, November 9, and it looks pretty clearly, to us, to be 1903. However, in the message, it looks like the sender wrote the date as March 8, 1908. Either way, it's an old card.

Here is the message ...


Printed in the United States, Edward H. Mitchell, Publisher, San Francisco.

We were unaware of Hillyard, Washington, but found the following on the web ...


Thank you for stopping by John's Island.

  3. neat scene on the card and cool to have it marked from a town that got 'swallowed up' later on.
