|Title:||Cumming Street and J.S. Kunn's residence, Augusta, Ga.|
|Description:||Early-twentieth century streetscape of Cumming Street and distant view of J.S. Kunn's residence in Summerville, Georgia. After the introduction of electric street cars in the 1890s, Summerville became a popular residential neighborhood for affluent Augustans and was officially incorporated into Augusta in 1912.|
Inscribed on verso: "Augusta, Ga., Nov. 7, 1911, I am sending the girls a pomegranite [pomegranate]. Tell them to break it open and eat the pulp around the seeds. They grow on bushes up to about five or six feet high, I think. The flowers are red and showy in spring. Miss Cooper and I are going to town this afternoon. We are afraid it will rain, so are not going after all. So Goodbye, --With Love, Ella"
Addressed to Mrs. Caroline M. Mayo, 24 Winter St., Orange, Mass.
