Vintage Green Lake Postcard


Another postcard of the Norton's Queen. This is the same Queen as seen in this postcard, sent 17 years later. I love how this card was hand-colored by the printer.

* I tried to Google the address, but Milwaukee must have re-assigned the street numbers on 23rd Street sometime over the last 100 years.
