More Pictures from Dennis Myers

Bart,

Here are two more Rich Hill post cards. The one of the Missouri Pacific Depot you already have on your website and the only difference is Ive included the back as it has some handwritten text and a postmark of May 23, 1911. I couldnt tell if the one you have on-line already has this or not but on the front, by the ramp is the text Photo By Van.

The other post card is of a bridge scene in Rich Hill but I have no idea where. The back also has handwritten text and a post mark of June 3, 1915.

Both are from an Inez G. and to a Miss Flossie Work.(?) in Iowa (Carlisle for the bridge scene and Milo for the train depot).

Inez G. is Inez Garrison Vodry. Flossie is her 1st cousin. Inez's mother Elizabeth Jane Work Garrison & Flossie's father John R. C. Work were brother & sister. Inez was 10 when she wrote the 1st post card and 14 when she wrote the 2nd.

I think the bridge is the one that was north of Rich Hill on 1st Street. Out by where Claude Ritchie lived.
