"Camden Place Park, Minneapolis, MN"
"The artifact is a small postcard with the title "Camden Place Park, Minneapolis, MN". The following caption explains the contents of the card:

This photograph was a picture postcard. It is marked on the front of the photo: 'Camden Place Park, Minneapolis, MN'. It shows ladies strolling down a beautifully manicured path after crossing a rustic bridge, apparently crossing Shingle Creel somewhere in the park. The reverse side of the postcard shows that it was mailed from the Riverside Station in Minneapolis in 1909,. This date makes me think that this park is right down on the river at the mouth of Shingle Creek. Webber Park did not exist at this time. The card was mailed to Mr Ernest Nelson from Mrs. Olivia Nelson and the short message is in Swedish.
