Manitoba Government Telephone Building, Winnipeg, Man.

Manitoba Government Telephone Building, Winnipeg, Man.
Valentine & Sons 105,183, showing the Telephone Building on Cumberland Avenue (I believe it is). Card mailed January 22, 1910 to Miss Fay Winslow, Chelsea Green P.O., London, Ontario.

"London" is written in a rather low-slung hand that made it look a lot like "Windsor", where in fact the card was sent, as indicated by the Windsor receiver. There is a very faint stamp next to this showing a hand with a finger pointing at the Windsor receiver. Inscribed in the hand is the word "Missent" and next to it is some sort of text that starts with "Please ..." It is too faint to make out. I've never seen this "hand" stamp before.
