Postcard from Great Grandma Morrison

written when she was almost 20 years old. This is the back of the postcard, the front depicted a photo of the car described within.

I've tried to clean it up a bit to make it a little more readable, but am not sure it worked so here's a transcript:


This is the car Dad got.

What do you think of it. He took us out for

a drive yesterday &

we enjoyed it. It was

Dad's second trip by

himself. He is doing very

well. Can go out to

Samford in a few

minutes now. You

remember the ... horse

we had, well it died

that is why Dad got

the car.

    It's great isn't it ? I didn't even know this existed and was just going through some scans Dad did from Grandpa & Grandma's photo albums.

    WOW wonderful piece of family history! Priceless! My grandma's name was Alice too, and I used to try to copy those wonderful A's... never quite got it!
  • David de Groot said:
    I can actually do an A like that, in fact, although I'm a little rusty, I'm capable of some rather nice calligraphy. :)
    It's definitely a neat little bit of history to stumble upon.

    Lovely penmanship. I know it was sad about the dead of their horse but it made me smile to read the reason they bought the car.

    Me too Margot.
