....And the answer is that it was destroyed in a fire in 1917

Postcard from Hancock Michigan from 1907  compared with today - 10/11/2020.

That’s fun!
There was a little girl,
            Who had a little curl,
Right in the middle of her forehead.
            When she was good,
            She was very good indeed,
But when she was bad she was horrid.

Is Rose telling tales out of school? What happens in Brunswick does not stay in Brunswick.
There was a little girl,
            Who had a little curl,
Right in the middle of her forehead.
            When she was good,
            She was very good indeed,
But when she was bad she was horrid.

I was going to say 70s from the color, but a 4-digit telephone number indicates earlier.  A zip code for the photo studio but not the printer is curious.  Next time I’m through that intersection, I’ll look for any archeological evidence.

Thanks juan, that would be cool.  Most of the similar postcards online point to the 1950's, but then again, no zip codes for that decade.  Strange indeed.  Edit: The zip code for Folkston, Ga, is 31537, so perhaps that 78741 is a production number?
