Some of these old painted postcards are quite charming. Others make you wonder where the bodies are buried. Click to enlarge and take a look at the people's faces! What's the story behind this? Any ideas? Here's the message -- and I'm not making this up:
say will how
would you like
to be here i will
tell you all when
i see you
The caption at the top left says "Irish Farmyard / table d'hôte 2.80 Sharp". Does anyone know why the term table d'hôte would be used in this context? Is it a sarcastic reference to the pig swill?
Do you have any further information about this postcard -- including historical details about the image, etc.? Put it in the comments, please!
Anyone may feel free to use cards from my turn-of-the-century postcard collection as long as they remember to credit me (Gail Hapke) and Scribal Terror as the source.
