Alice Carr postcard

The item is a single postcard, not dated but believed to be 1912 because of the information written on it. It is addressed to Mrs. Wilson, Cadboro Bay Rd, City, from Alice Carr. The image on the card is titled "Ocean Docks, Victoria, B.C." The text on the card reads: "Dear Mrs Wilson, We are inviting a few friends to see Millie's summer sketches on Thursday between 4 & 6 o'clock & will be pleased to see you if you can come. Sincerely, Alice Carr." Millie refers to the author's sister, artist Emily Carr. The date of 1912 is probable because this might reference Emily Carr 's first trip to Haida Gwaii and the Skeena River which was that summer and on which she created a large body of art works.
