Postcard Caption Contest – Week One


Here’s my plan: Once a week or so until That Forgetful Shore is released in the fall, I’m going to post a picture of one of the original early-1900s postcards that inspired the novel. YOU, my devoted readers, have to suggest possible captions for the picture of the weeks. From all the entries I get over the course of the summer, I’m going to draw three winners and each of them will get a signed copy of the book as soon as it’s available! Also,k of course, you get to have some fun with these lovely vintage postcard images, some of which are … intriguing, to say the least! (After each one has been posted and left up for a week for comments, I’ll post what the actual caption to the postcard is. There’s at least one in the collection where the original caption is weirder than anything I think you’ll be able to come up with, but I’ll save that for awhile).

So, this is the first. Come up with a caption for it, and post your suggestion below!
