The photograph above was on a postcard recently for sale on eBay. The seller's comments are quoted below.                                                                                                                      PHL
"This is a very nice, clear old photo postcard of employees of the Clinton County Poor Farm at Charlotte, Iowa. Postcard is used and postmarked 1913. Writing on card says "Steward and Mrs. Rowan and Assistants, Clinton Co. Poor Farm". Fine print to the right says, I think, "B.T.Petersen, Charlotte, Iowa". Embossed on the lower left hand side is "Louis O. Peterson, Charlotte, Iowa"..probably the photographer."
