"Dear Ola..."

Mabel sent this cute Halloween postcard to Ola sometime in the early 20th century.

The postmark date was too smudged for my eye to glean (thinking maybe it's 1904 or 1914?).

What a different age we hear in that last line, "Why don't you write sometime?"

If she had been born a century later, she could have hunted Ola down on FACEBOOK and forced her attention.

But living in the time she did, Mabel could have been writing to someone who had been dead for six months without having a clue.
