This picture was taken from some big high rocks in front of my uncle's house. There are hardly any lumber houses here - nearly all dirt or stone. Some are made of pretty pink rocks. They get the different kinds of rock from the mountains in the town or near town. Hope I'll see you again sometime. Miss Ada." The postcard was addressed to Miss Janet Harris.
