A young miss, a little flower, a winding path and a unique skyline, near Overbrook.
Photographer’s manuscript note on verso: “A young miss, a little flower, a winding path and a unique skyline. Near Overbrook. If you are in a big city and without acquaintances, get a camra [sic] or something that looks like one. Wander around looking serious and either taking pictures or appearing to take them; act critically, slowly, and deliberately. If in one Sunday afternoon you do not greet, or are not greeted by at least 10 people, then you are hopeless. Boys if you make a photo such as this, the rest is easy. Obtain the address and send her a print via F.O.B. [Free on Board--shipping is responsibility of buyer] yourself.”
