Postcard: the front of the postcard shows a large embossed image of a red rose with stem and leaves attached; there are also white architectural details in the background and two people in Victorian era clothing (one man and one woman); text near the bottom reads: "How happy be, who to his hearth / Can woo domestic love and worth! / How sweet are fireside joys! How dear / The charms that please and soothe us here. / Tennyson"; there is a decorative gold border around the outside edges; on the back of the postcard on the right hand side it is addressed to "Miss Mabel Berry / Sperling Station" and there are two one cent postage stamps in the upper right corner; there is a "Sperling Station / BC" stamp near the centre which is dated September 14; on the left hand side a message has been handwritten in pencil; the writing is sideways to the orientation of the card; the message reads: "Hello Mabel / Hope your / ear is better + that / you are able to start / school again - Ronny / (is?) Jake. Will see you / Sunday week. If you / want anything write + / let me know for yourself or / mother / xxx"; there are some more words at the bottom but they are too small to make out.
