Entrance To Lawrence Park, Bronxville, N. Y. POSTCARD
Circa 1904. Entrance to Lawrence Park, Bronxville, N. Y. Postcard. This postcard is from the trunk of my great-grandmother, Mattie Sweatt Deshazo. She was born in Alabama and lived in Alabama and Florida. Where she got all these postcards addressed to a Mrs. Tower in Cohasset, Mass. I do not know. This postcard was published by Photo & Art Postal Card Co. New York City, #14979. The card reads, "Such a poor picture of a very pretty place. This hotel is fine and stands so high that we seem to be way up in the mountains. We are having beautiful drives and are enjoying it very much here. Suppose Mr. Tower & Bess go tomorrow. With love, Edith."
