This early postcard carries the logo or trademark for Gottschalk, Dreyfuss & Davis of New York on the back left corner. Their postcards were most often printed in Germany as this one was and their trademark features a little girl posting a card at a pillar type mailbox.
The card features an Irish harp and shamrocks. The drawing is copyrighted 1909 by B. Hoeman. A cameo insert labeled as "St. Patrick's Well, CO. Armagh" is a picture of a well not far from St. Patrick's Cathedral in Northern Ireland. The Catholic Church considers St. Patrick's Well to be holy.
The card has been circulated and carries a clear postmark for Detroit, Michigan from 1910. The message appears to be from a daughter (Mary) to her Mother. In over-all Good Condition, the corners are lightly bumped and the card has some light soiling / staining around the upper edge and on one side. The canceled stamp is intact. No rips, tears or creases noted.
