Comment: In this post card, the Fraser-Champlain house (left, Historic Structure ID Br29) and the Badetty-Petretti House (right, Br29A) are clearly visible. The "ancient oak tree" which long stood in front of the St. James Church (Br28A) is visible center left; the church itself is barely visible to the left of the Badetty house.

An encircling porch can be seen on the house, which was removed sometime after 1923 during the Reddall's tenancy.

The post card was addressed to Mr. Harry Morrow in Philadelphia, from Mrs. William Robinson ("Having a dandy time.") Harry Morrow may be Harry D. Morrow (b. 1884), son of Thomas Irwin Morrow, Sr. and Elizabeth Mary Gahan.

This postcard, acquired through an Ebay auction in June 2004, was not found in the Post-Morrow Foundation collection.

Comment: This image has been cropped from the previous postcard, and minimally enhanced. It more clearly shows the Badetty house before the encircling porch and minimal gingerbread was removed. Notice also that there were front dormers at the 3rd floor/attic.
