(The Post Office of Haworth Kansas
closed in November of 1910).

The wagon is being loaded by three men as another man stands by with hand leaned against a horse -- watching the work in progress. There is a ladder leaned against a huge pile of giant onions and the men seem to be using a wooden skid or piece of lumber for leverage as they load the giant onions to the wagon. The front is inscribed with:

"Harvesting a profitable crop of onions in Kans."

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and often times a simple postcard is too!

There is an interesting historical write-up online done by Rebecca S. Hall on Haworth, Kansas under the title; "Lost Kansas Communities":

It includes information on the lost town of Haworth as well as the towns founding brothers, George Chalkley Haworth and Mahlon Thorburo Haworth, the sons of Mahlon and Mary Haworth.

Thh brothers were born in Indiana during the 1830's. Their father,

“The senior Haworth was a Quaker and opposed slavery, his religious beliefs endangered the family during the tumultuous time prior to the Civil War when he allowed his home [in Iowa sometime around the 1850's] to be used as a safe house for runaway slaves.”

A fascinating look at the lost town of Haworth and the founding family and community that once thrived near the city of Cuba, Kansas. Don't forget to read that entire online account of Haworth, it includes pictures and maps.

Postcard measures approximately 3 3/8 inches from top to bottom and 5 1/2 inches across.

An Original pre-owned vintage / antique postcard in very good condition. The card has a couple of soiled spots near the pile of onions and chipping along the edges. It has a Kansas cancellation on front too, but I can't quite make it out. Picture is nice and bright. Please see both scans provided.

OVER 100 years old, this antique postcard will make a very nice addition to your post card collection.
