1907 RPPC: Feeding the ducks

This real photo postcard features a nice woman who is feeding and watering the ducks. I hope she's not fattening them up for the dinner table, but I reckon that's a possibility.

The card was postmarked at 9 a.m. on August 15, 1907, in New Holland, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. (The Phillies lost to the Chicago Cubs, 5-1, on that day. The Cubs, with Tinker, Evers and Chance, won the World Series later that year.)

The postcard was mailed to Miss Mary E. Steinmetz of Reading. That fits a person I discovered who was born in 1905, so I guess it's possible this postcard was sent to a toddler, perhaps as a "hello" from a relative.
