Good Evening,

Tonight I have two pictures to share with you, generously donated by Emily and Nelson Coles.  Thank you!

The first picture features Sidney and Opal Coles with baby Ruby and grandma Veiva Coles.  This picture would have been taken before 1941 when Veiva died.

The second picture is that of  Harrison Coles, youngest son of Elmer Coles and Veiva (Leach) Coles.  The date is unknown.

*********************************

Again, many thanks to Nelson and Emily Coles for sharing these two photographs.

The Buffalo

Hi Everyone,

Here’s my submission for the Postcard Carnival “Quadrupeds.”  This card, with many others is part of a collection my husband inherited from his grandparents.  Some of the cards are photos, like this one, others are elaborate floral designs or holiday greetings.  But a quadruped this fellow is… so here in all his glory is the mighty buffalo!

buffalo003

The card has no writing on the reverse, but the text on the front says:  “KING OF AMERICAN BEASTS, Copyright – 1906. Sumner W.Matteson”  The card was published by W.T. Ridgley Calendar Co., Great Falls, Montana.

The Goat Cart

 

goat cart003

Even though I don’t know the origin of this post card it’s so delightful I couldn’t resist posting it.  The back of the card says “Mrs. Sherman from Margaret.”  Mrs. Sherman was my husband’s  Great Grandmother and and we assume the card was hers since it was with others she’d collected.  Goat carts were used in the early 20th century and probably earlier as well, and came in a variety of styles. This one looks like a one person buggy of the sort that would be used with a horse if it were full sized.  Carts were more than a novelty… they were used for transportation to school or church, there was a type for carrying things like garden produce, and I’m sure many, many others.  Since goats are pretty strong for their size and usually willing workers a “goat cart”  would be practical transportation.
