“Missouri Watermelons: The delta-area of southeast Missouri is noted for its production of watermelons. One of the area’s main crops.” Sentence fragment FTL from the description on the back of the card.
I love this card because the photo is timeless; it might have been taken yesterday or 50 years ago. I was able to discover (pretty easily, this being a John Hinde Curteich card with a serial number) that this card was produced in 1972 which, if the photo is contemporaneous, would mean that this young lady is in her early 40’s. Maybe she’ll stop by and tell us her identity!
