January 1908 Postcard to Cousin Leland from Bert
Central Hotel - Highmore, Hyde County, South Dakota
This postcard was found on an online auction site. It was called the Central Hotel, and assumed to be from Highmore, SD, as that was the origin of the postmark.

The card was written January 13, 1908 and mailed January 21, 1908 from Highmore, S.Dak. to Leland France at Seward, N.Y.

Message reads:
Cousin Leland
We sent your people some pictures last week hope they rec'd them OK
(signed) Bert

What a treasure for someone researching this family! I'm hoping to learn who "Bert" was.

Since this page was first posted, I've been unable to confirm that a Central Hotel existed in Highmore, SD. Perhaps it was located in a neighboring town, or this picture postcard was given to "Bert" by someone else. If anyone knows "the rest of the story", please share. Thanks.
