A Postcard from Lanark –1905 — Don’t Call!

I bought this from EBay for my Lanark County collection as I thought the message was quite neat, and I had not seen this landscape before. It was sent August 7th, 1905 and postmarked Lanark Village. The front is a scene “The Clyde — Lanark, Ontario ( as seen from the Lower Bridge)

It was addressed to Miss S. Sullivan in Arnprior c/o Telephone Office and sent by N. K in Lanark.

The message was:

“I was just settling down for a nice talk last night when some person cut it short. Say do not let the girls call unless I call first because the Boss has caught me overtime, and what I don’t want is to get caught again. Try and come to C. P.”
