Lilacs for Louisa -Harbourton, New Jersey (1907)

Miss Louisa C. Hart lived in Harbourton, an historic community in west-central New Jersey.

In February of 1907, Louisa received a postcard from Trenton, NJ.

The face of the postcard bears an hand-colored photograph of lilacs blooming by a gate.

The postcard was published by the American News Company of Berlin, New York, and Dresden; it is safe to assume that the printing was done in Germany.

There is no indication of the sender or of the occasion for the postcard.

It is a lovely scene for a mid-winter day, and one hopes that Louisa was pleased by it.
