Glad Easter Greetings from Pearl – Painesville, Ohio (1911)

In the Spring of 1911, Mr. Hugh Barman was living on Walnut Street in Painesville, Ohio.

Painesville, a city on the Grand River, lies 27 miles northeast of Cleveland and very close to Lake Erie.

Mr. Barman received a postcard announcing “Glad Easter Greetings”.

The brightly-colored and embossed postcard bears an illustration of newly-hatched chicks surrounded by a wreath of lilies and other flowers.

I do not recognize the small publisher’s insignia at the bottom of the face – the reverse identifies the postcard as part of the “Easter Chick Series”.

Mailed from Painesville, the postcard was sent by Pearl.

Pearl did not disclose initials or a surname; we may assume that she was well-known to Hugh.

The Postmaster of Postmistress canceled the stamp and applied the “received” postmark on the same day.

One hopes that Mr. Barman and Pearl remained correspondents for many years.
