An Easter Egg for Ella – Columbia, PA (1907)

Miss Ella Von Stetton lived on Houston Street in Columbia, PA.

Columbia was a transportation and commercial center on the Susquehanna River in central Pennsylvania.

In March of 1907, Ella received an Easter postcard from her Sunday School teacher, M. E. Shertzer.

The postcard features a large, deeply-embossed Easter Egg (hand-tinted purple) surrounded by pink blossoms.

The legend proclaims in embossed letters, “Easter Greetings”.

The postcard was published by the Douglass Post Card Company of Philadelphia; it was printed in Berlin.

Ella preserved the postcard in good condition for more than a century.

One hopes that Miss Ella and Ms. Shertzer enjoyed a blessed holiday.
