#12: A cozy Irish cabin, circa 1906 (Postcard Blogathon 2013)

Title: An Irish Cabin.
Publisher: Unknown, but see below.
Year: Mailed in 1906.
Used: Yes.

Comments: OK, I'm sure that living conditions were cramped and not always sanitary. But doesn't this cabin in the rolling hills of Ireland look like a cozy place to live? No paperwork. No traffic jams. No Walmart. ... This postcard pairs nicely with the "Goat-on-Roof Dream House" I featured earlier this week. ... The card was postmarked at 2:45 p.m. on July 12, 1906, in Douglas, Isle of Man. The postcard was mailed to Belfast. ... I don't know who the postcard publisher was, but this logo appears on the back of the card:
