A postcard illustrating the late 1800's and early 1900's practice of throwing a peel over your shoulder to predict the initial of the person you'll marry. The front says:
This card actually bears two postmarks, one on Oct. 31st, 1908 in Omaha, Neb. and the second in Nov. in Iowa. It's addressed to
Miss Effie Clark
The message on the card reads:
It is rather
late for Hallowe'en cards
but I tho't - better late
Here's what the back looks like if you're curious.
There is also a 300 dpi version of this card.
