#20 Zora's sister (click on picture to enlarge)
This is a penny post card, it was popular at the time. You have your picture taken and put on one side of the card and a message and address where you wanted it sent would be on the other side.  It was called a penny post card because it only needed a "one cent" U.S. stamp to send it.  It is unknown how much it cost to have the picture made.  This card is from Zora's sister Cora. 

Written on card; "Dear Zora, Well here comes the long looked for card.  How do you like it?  This is a hot summer day here.  This was made in corner of yard.  Cora"

The card was sent from Vanburen, Arkansas on March 21, 1912.  Mrs. J.C. Melton on the card has been inked over, but it can still be seen on the original card, I recreated it in white ink.  Zora's address on card is Box 778, Ashville, North Carolina.  picture couresy of Leon Huber
