Picked this up off Ebay.  Dated Oct 24, 1910 from Fort Des Moines on postmark. Have not been able to track down sender, but think he may be the 4th from left in front rank.

 

Love the hats!

Very possible.THe FOrt was home for them.

 

Spoke to a guy today who said the "farm ground" that was the old firing range for the Fort is for sale.Maybe funt to metal detect there.Wonder where the dump is for the Fort?

 

A buddy worked at the Naval Reserves out of Fort DM a few years ago.Said lots of odd stuff would turn up out of the old buildings from time to time.

 

Even some of the area homeless would shack up there after peeling off the plywood over the windows from some of the abandoned buildings there.

If I can find the man, maybe can find his records.  Card was sent to Evelyn Harrington in Margaretville, NY by R.H. -  Maybe his last name was also Harrington (?) but can't find either one on Ancestry.
