September 15, 1908

This photo postcard shows a young woman holding a parasol, standing among many trees, which may be in front of the Wabash College Arboretum. The reverse of the postcard bears the message, "Dear Mrs. Chase We will be home the latter part of this week and can fully enjoy a rest. Looking forward to see you I am With best wishes Mrs. Burns." Addressed to Mrs. Jim Chase, Kalamazoo, Michigan. 

Postmarked September 15, 1908

In 1908, the only family named Burns in the city directory was P.H. and Zerelda Burns, with a daughter named Anna, who lived at 308 W. Wabash Avenue.

Was this Anna, standing in front of the family home on Wabash Ave. when the photo was taken?
