Richard and Margaret Kelley Postcard, 1915. Picture postcard with a photograph of Richard and Margaret Kelley as very young children. Richard, left, and Margaret, right, are posing on a large tree stump somewhere in Mendocino. The postcard was sent by Annie Kelley to Aunt Elise Kelley Drexler, wishing Elise (Aunt Lee, as the children called her) a Happy New Year and dated December 30, 1915. The children are listed as Dick and Margaret Kelley so the photograph must have been taken around 1905 when they were about 2 and 4 years of age.
