I'm going to stick with the flirtation collection for a bit. This one is another from publisher Theodor Eismann, with a photo from De Witt C. Wheeler. I've put up a couple of others from Wheeler. He was a photographer who had a brief success making magic lantern slides for home and theater use. Some of his slides can be found in the collection of Eastman House in Rochester, New York. The collection is on line.
The message, "Aint that a sight. Right in broad daylight." The card isn't signed, but we do know the writer was a bit of a poet. The card was never mailed, but it does have an address. "Nellie B. Stilson. Guilford, Me. RFD" I hope it got into her hands.
