Greetings Joyce,
I trust all is well. I was recently lucky enough to snag another LeRaysville real photo postcard off of eBay that I didn't have in my collection. This makes the fifth Bosworth Brothers card I have. There's three of their clothing store, and this makes my second one of their General Merchandise store. I think one of the coolest things about this card is that great looking house next door with the pillars out front! Wow! The postcard was postmarked in October of 1907. I'd be willing to bet none of the six gentlemen posing in front of the store ever imagined that somebody would be looking at their picture over 100 years later!

Take Care,
Kevin Gibbs

Post Office - Postmarked February 18, 1906 - Building, that is no longer there, that housed the LeRaysville Post Office and the Fay L. Rose Groceries & Meats Store. Other postcards showing this same building next to the First National Bank don’t show the Post Office sign, so the post office must have been located in a different building when those postcards were made.
