Lake View Cemetery, Cleveland, Ohio
This is the last of my Lake View cards. It’s a puzzler because the view is so bland. It could be any park in summertime. Nothing indicates it’s a cemetery, let alone tying it specifically to Lake View. Funnily enough, I don’t remember there being a pond in the cemetery when I visited, but it’s possible it was removed over the years.
The back of the card has a curious message which reads: “I will send you a criticism of our theatres next week. No I have never seen Jessie Bonstelle. Do you like stock companies.” Not sure why he chose a cemetery postcard for this message, but he is the author and she the same recipient as yesterday’s card. So they had some kind of relationship.
This card is postmarked February 8, 1909, almost exactly nine months after yesterday’s card.
