Silvia, Cottagewood Grocery circa 1920 and a postcard from the past.

Cottagewood Grocery  1910

Anna Jean from Richmond, Washington (State) sent this card. These are fragments of a young girl, her sisters, and her mother who came to work in Cottagewood, Deephaven in the 1920s as servants (this is my estimation). Her mother's writing on the back of the cards is simple and sincere.
