This post card was from an estate sale I went to a couple of months ago. Its an old song, Comin' thro the Rye, that is written on silk. Made by W.H. Grant & Co. It's dated July 28th 1908. And reads exactly:
From Ashton's fireside,
we view the Clyde and watch the ships pass by,
both steamer and sail,
and the American Mail
& trim little Yacth's on the fly.
Yours in Gourock wi'a sourock that's waited patiently for me Johnny
The cursive writing is so nice. Then addressed Denver, Colorado, USA . It was missing the stamp. :-(
Does anyone know what the last sentence means?
