The picture of Samoset Island above is from 1910 and sold by Bardwell and
Haigis. To the right is a picture taken in March 2008 of what I think is the same
island. Behind the island is the creek that flows in from
Factory Hollow
These are some of the postcards of the Turners
Falls, MA area sold by my Grandfather, John W.
Haigis when he was in partnership with Mr.
Bardwell in a
corner book store in Turners
between 1905 and 1910.   
The postcards were printed in
Germany and when they were
starting out they were in black
and white . Judging from the
postmarks, they sold color
postcards around 1910
This is what was written on the postcard
"for the ice cream" ???
