Found Postcard. Can anyone decipher the scrawl? All I can make out is “Please don’t let the…..Our girl is mad”. Lovely Typography on the front is credited Copyright RG Wells 1907

    “please don’t let the fellows stuff one with a lot of camp lies, make them state facts.Our girl is mad” Theo….18th of August 1907
    ….Interesting…gentlemen of a certain persuasion who are careless with the truth?
    Unfortunately the name and address don’t reveal much other than a male and i ,m assuming Dando is the surname, Scandinavian or English in origin and Irondale, Ohio,right on the border with Pennsylvania, which now only has a population of less than 400 (393 American census Bureau 2009), so must have been sparcely populated 100 plus years ago. The post mark says Kansas City,a mere 800 miles away!
