[Postcard from John Nielsen to Christine Olson]

His right forearm is poised in front of his torso. On the back side is a note written in pen by John to his friend Christine.

Dear Friend- I will send you a copy of myself in my street car suit. I was going to have it taken with my hat on but I changed my mind. Your friend, John."
