Hamilton and his wife spent eleven summers on the island resort of Campobello, New Brunswick, which yielded subjects for many of his paintings including this one, painted around 1900. It is an oil on canvas mounted on Masonite (28" x 28") and can be found in the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
The significance of this card, apart from the fact that I like art, is the lady reading, as Danielle knows I collect postcards of them.
One of the stamps on this card was this Pontiac which is from the same series the Chevelle featured on this post.
