This is a unique old postcard. I don’t see any buildings through all that foliage, do you? Anything you recognize? As it is labeled “Elm Walk, Essex, NY” then I am assuming that this sidewalk is on Elm Street. What has changed on this street since the time the photo was taken? The label tells us that was the year 1907 — 110 years ago!
Here’s the back side of the postcard below. Click on it to enlarge and decipher the message written on it.
