Miss Charlotte Esque

BI 034aBI 034b

This postcard addressed to Miss Charlotte Esque of Portland, Tennessee, was sent from Charles H. Meyers of 3316 Wabash Avenue, Detroit, Michigan, on 25 may 1925. He writes about receiving “the box of strawberrys” from Charlotte. It is worth noting that Portland, Tennessee is considered the Strawberry Capitol and just celebrated its  76th Annual Festival in 2016. They are already making plans for the 2018 Strawberry Festival.

Just a card to let you know that we received the box of strawberrys with your address on and will say they were fine. Send me some more like them. Would like to hear from you. Good by. Charles H. Meyers
