The children featured in this sweet RPPC (real photo postcard) were easy to identify once I located the recipients of the letter, Orland H. Blake and his wife, Gertrude, of Yarmouth, Maine.
The sender was Orland’s sister Mrs. Grace Allen. The little nieces were Emily Louise, Clara Mildred, Ruth, Isabelle, and baby Ernestine. Sadly, Ernestine died of diphtheria when she was five years old.
