“Merry Xmas and and enjoyable 364 after that. Helen Shacklett”
Helen was a school friend of Grandma Florence. Helen did use the residence address for the family as they lived above the store which had the address 1346.
Interesting post card. The design was by appointment to the King and Queen. There is the English Royal Coat printed on the obverse. Yet, the card prominently states it was printed in the U.S.A.
