The Suspension Bridge, Grand Falls, N.B.
Third of the cards mailed to Miss Maxine Baumann, this one on July 3, 1911, with her receipt stamp. This one is from Howard V. Cornfield, 48 Duke St. West, St. John, New Brunswcik, Canada. Howard hasn't followed the French postal rules quite as meticulously as Nellie Bowes (see other cards) but he has most of the stamp on the front, at least (perhaps it was done that way so that the Canadian postmaster would see the edge of the stamp on the other side and not think the card was unstamped.) The words "POST CARD" have been taped over on the back and a French ink stamp records the card's receipt on July 11, 1911 with a reply on July 30, 1911. There is also a serial number stamped on the back.
