Roy's Postcards: Unknown date
To my dear sister, who can not read cursive at this time. This postcard has a pretty background I hope you like it.
Carl Christian Anton Christensen: Handcart Pioneers, 1900.
Oil on canvas, 24" x 37"
An 1857 immigrant from Copenhagen, Christensen (1830-1912) painted Handcart Pioneers from personal experience. He also painted theater scenery, LDS temple murals, and Mormon Panorama.
That was thoughtful of Susanna to hand-print the postcard.
