Terrific little story told in a rhyme as follows...
'Neath the shade of an apple tree,
Two lovers sat hand in hand,
"Will you be mine for life" said he
"And wear my golden band?"
She replied "this is so sudden dear,
Though my love could not be stronger,
I've only known you for an hour,
You must wait a little longer."
The number "473" is printed in the bottom left corner of the front.
There is a crease across the middle (see scans) from where it looks like the Postcard was folded in two at some point in the distant past. The corners are bumped but the charm of the picture is priceless.
Sender wrote a personal note on the back ending with..."thought I would send you a little love in the orchards.".
Postmark is from Chieveley and the Half Penny stamp is in excellent condition.
Shipping anywhere within the Continental United States is $2.75 with Delivery Confirmation.
One unscrupulous person always ruins it for everyone else. As a result of a recent Etsy decision to refund someone from my Paypal account, I will no longer be able to ship anything outside the Continental United States unless it is sent by Registered Air Mail...which is approx $12 more than standard Air Mail Shipping. Sorry about that. Please contact me to amend the listing if that is what you need.
