Daffodils in the arms of a young girl is the image that appears on this Bank of Amory postcard with a 1910 copyright date. The postcard is just one of the items found in the scrapbook of memorabilia and photographs of Jesse Davis Moore. On back of the postcard is a friendly note of an unsigned writer to Miss Myrtle Moore.

Myrtle was Jesse's little sister, and she was born in 1905. Since the note references "school being out" the note appears to be written between 1910 and 1920. The note is not dated, and there is no postmark. Its sender perhaps associates with the little girl on the front of the card.

Frances Myrtle Davis was the youngest child of Charles Davis Moore and Elizabeth Simmons.
