Title

An Embroidered J S Paris Postcard Sent To Mrs Frank Martineau Farmington NH

Description

A hand embroidered, color silk, J S Paris postcard sent to Mrs Frank Martineau on Bridge Street, NH, with best wishes from Fred. Mr and Mrs Martineau are mentioned in the Farmington historical record, but not in association with a Bridge Street. The silk embroidery is of the sun coming over the horizon surrounded by vegetation of some kind with a line of leaves and flowers below them. Also embroidered underneath this motif is a saying: "Greetings from the Trenches." This was a common saying from the first World War.

This item is stained over the whole body of the object, on both sides. The writing on the back of the card is fading, or completely obscured, though the embroidery is in fair condition given the age of the item.
