Vintage Green Lake Postcard

Sailing By Moonlight
On Green Lake, Wis.
Without anything along the lines of identifiable landmarks, this postcard may be a case of where the printer took a stock image and added the place location. But who cares, it's still a cool image - and how I'd love to sail that fine craft.
Postmarked Ripon, Wis., July 26, 1912

Addressed to:
Miss Nell Ammel
Malone, Wisconsin

July 25
There's a bunch here for a while. Sat. we go home. Wish we could stay longer. Took a launch ride around the lake this P.M. Irma

Even though she has a unique name, a little internet sleuthing came up with a big fat nothing on Ms. Ammel.

And since this post was so brief, here's another vintage sailboat postcard. No location given and sadly unused, so there's no story on the flip side.
But the image is certainly cool. Enjoy!
