The Centre of Skaneateles

A postcard with a drawing from a photo by H.A. Livingston (of Skaneateles), printed in Germany, mailed in Germany, to an address in Germany. The card was apparently sent from a doctor to the mother of a patient, and noted (in German) that on Tuesday her daughter could be immunized between 3 and 5 p.m. “Please be so kind and stop by.” This is the second example of a Skaneateles card printed and mailed within Germany that I’ve seen, probably a printer’s sample that was never shipped back to the U.S.

My thanks to Petra Erbes of Skaneateles and her mother in Germany who deciphered the old German cursive for me.
