I am assuming that Nellie was asking her sister the cost of dress goods in her town of Afton. My imagination at this point wonders if she knew she was getting married soon and was planning her wedding dress? (She married William Ball on October 2, 1910 in Oklahoma). Or just freshening up her wardrobe.
I really enjoy these post cards and consider them a real treasure trove!
Zelma Fern Ball is front row, 4th from right marked with an "X".
She was born October 8, 1912 in Arnett, Ellis County, Oklahoma and died September 24, 2005 in Vancouver, Clark County, Washington. She was my maternal grandmother.
