D4 - Dexter Press - Who is the driver?
This "Dexter Press" American postcard from my collection has a small pin hole through one of the people in the boats. It is not some kind of voodoo, but shows which person the note on the back refers to when you hold the card up to the light. As you can see, the note says "my husband sitting on the launch he drives". I don't know who wrote the message or who the husband is. If you know, please put a comment on this Blog.
I'm not sure what year this photograph was taken, but there are other cards in the same series which might help to date it. One shows teacher Russell Henry outside the Pitcairn school with his pupils, another shows Fred and Parkin Christian and says they are both 85 years old. Yet another shows a group of Islanders with their handicrafts and states that in 1970 the population was 90.
