Lonely in Limestone

This card was mailed almost exactly 104 years ago, when Limestone TN had cowboys and stage coaches. Ah, those were the days…

This is a standard-size postcard, a generic issue overprinted with “Limestone”.  These cards were generally sold by an agent of the printing company, so this particular motif was chosen by someone local…the one who placed the order.  I do not see any printer’s credit on the card.  By 1914 there were dozens of print shops churning out varieties of cheap postcards.

One other <yawn> interesting aspect of this card: to read the message, you rotate the card toward you.  Most cards require a horizontal rotation.
