The city of Houston was expecting a snow day.
Instead, they got an ice day.
In the spirit of snow day, I found a postcard to share with you made by the
Detroit Publishing Company.
The postcard reads:
"Every pine and fir and hemlock wore ermine too dear for an earl,
And the poorest twig on the elm-tree was ridged inch deep with pearl."
The Detroit Publishing Company was one of the largest American publishers of postcards and photographic views during the early decades of the 20th century. The images are a rich source of documentation for the study of North American landscape and cityscape, and include views of well-known streets, buildings, historic-monuments, natural scenery, industry, transportation and daily life.
Unfortunately, the location of this landscape is not on the postcard.
A big THANK YOU to Beth for being our hostess for Postcard Friendship Friday.
Wishing you well, a JOY filled weekend and a fun Snow Day!
