I have a similar postcard accept mine says Canarsie rather than Plymouth. I purchased it at an online auction. Mine was mailed in 1913.

I have to say I thought my encounter with a 12 foot grizzly was scary but this postcard is much more frightening! :O -Barefoot2k<a href="http://www.survivalgrounds.com/bear_mace.php">Avoid a Grizzly Attack</a>
