Postcard, ca. 1911

This postcard was found in the same shop as the photograph in my previous post.  It mocks the "hobble skirt", surely one of the silliest fashions ever inflicted on women.

I get the date from the message on the back of the postcard which reads:

Milawa, March 1st, 1911

Dear Hep the Box was sent yesterday I hope you got it safe you will have to be careful the pears & apples have the codlin in the pears will soon ripen if laid up a few days the apples are only fit for cooking.  with fondest love from Mother & McGregor.
