Postcard found at an antique show. Handwriting on the back is addressed to Mr. Floyd Ball, 810 W. Pine St., Independence, Kansas. "Dear Brother, I will send you a picture we had taken the 22 of Oct. Is it very cold there now and do you go very much in your chair or is it to [sic] cold roll over and see me some day. Bye Bye now." Very annoying that none of the people IN the photo are named. They sure are proud of that nice car.

Found in an antique store in Belton, Texas. According to the visible product labels, Independence Biscuit Company was based in Independence, Kansas and made "cakes, crackers and biscuits". This photo shows an assembly line of workers packaging what appear to be biscuits or large crackers. The product may have been baked in the same room - there are scorch marks on the brick wall nn the left foreground that may be an oven. I would guess that this photo was taken sometime in the early 20th century. It's hard to say exactly when because everybody is wearing work clothes - not exactly the latest fashion trends.

I’ve “rescued” an old photograph identified as Ada Wilson DUNDAS which was taken at the Bollow’s Art Studio in Osborne, KS. The photograph appears to have been taken in the early 1900’s with Ada likely in her 20’s at the time. I don’t know if “Wilson” is a middle name (maybe her Mother’s maiden name) or her own maiden name. I’m hoping to locate someone from her family so that this wonderful old treasure can be returned to the care of her family. If you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me. Thanks, Shelley

I’ve “rescued” an old photograph of Laura CLARK which was taken at the Rollins Studio in Osborne, KS. The photograph appears to have been taken in the 1890’s or early 1900’s with Laura in her teens at the time it was taken. I’m hoping to locate someone from Laura’s family so that this wonderful old photograph can be returned to the care of her family. If you are a member of this CLARK Family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me. Thanks, Shelley
