This huge Globe of the Earth is constructed of steel, weighs 3-14 tons and has a diameter of 10 ft. and circumference of 31 ft 5 inches. It is placed in the center of the Pan American Terminal building at Miami, Florida.
This card is canceled on the front, but its kind of hard to read the exact date (June 5, XXXX). There is no message on the other side, and was another card mailed to Bertha Dicus. Based on the other cards that were with this one, I’m saying early 1900’s (plus the card itself is dated 1912 in the lower left corner).
Sharing this with you all because it reminds me of Spring Showers! Which we have had enough of over the last few weeks. The graphic also reminds me of the Morton Salt Girl – When it Rains it Pours!
Another great card from Bertha (and Jim) Dicus of Alanson, Michigan. I have quite a few cards that were sent to Bertha over the years. Here is a Happy Easter card from her cousin Mary Bateson of Prairie Depot, Ohio dated March 24, 1910.
