Original Pencil Sketch 1906 Sylvan Rest Cottage Pine Station PA Postcard

For sale is a postally used Postal Card postcard that is an original sketch of a cabin at the Sylvan Rest Cottages, Pine Station, Pa.
This is truly a one-of-a-kind object.

The artist made sketches labelled "Exterior" and "Interior" of the cabin where the family was staying. The Exterior has a label "Sans Souci" above the doorway. The interior sketch shoes a lot of little shoes below the beds and lots of socks hanging on the wall.

The writing on the bottom says (roughly):
"I am camping here with Succleys (?). It's loads of fun, fishing, boating, berries & Boys. C.M.R."

Postmarked Jul 30, 1906, Harrisburg & Erie RPO. This was a pre-paid card with a 1-cent stamp built in.

Rating: Good, some corner wear and light staining. There is light creasing on the card, but the card is intact.
