Cozy Corner

There's a nice message on the back of this one, "Do You think so.  I don't think you do.  As you did not come up.  Bertha"  It seems Bertha isn't satisfied with her lot in life.  Or at least she's not happy with her friend, Walter.  Addressed to " Mr. Walter Sedgley, Bowdoinham, Me."  Postmarked, "LEWISTON ME.  JAN 25 7-AM 1910." 

This card was published Theodor Eismann, a publisher with offices in New York City and Leipzig, Saxony, in Germany.  They were in business form 1908 to 1914.  I have no idea why they went under, but a trans Atlantic company with offices in Germany and the United States would have had a great deal of trouble functioning in World War 1. 

Click on flirtation in labels to see the lot.  At least what's been published.
