Madison, Wisconsin Postcard Capitol Building - 1908

Found this at an antique store in Ohio in 2003 during a road trip. Love the newly planted small trees, which are now immense. The Capitol in this postcard was the 3rd capitol, which caught on fire in 1904 and was demolished. Guess they still had this postcard floating around in 1908.

Here is the back of the postcard. My favorite passage: "Did Rosa let you read my letter? If she did you know all about me then."
