Description Postcard photograph of the Dow Chemical Company plant and the Tittabawassee River.

Written on the back: "Am writing this at the chloroform plant while waiting for the whistle to blow dinner time. Like my work here fine. Will be very busy by the time the other chemist goes but don't have a whole lot to do now. Started here Mon P.M. learning things and the next day the chief chemist was taken sick and I had to do all his work with a half days experience. Its a pretty particular job and my hair was pretty near gray by night but I got along without slip. Will write you all about it soon. Yours in a hurry, Pat."

The postcard is addressed to: "Miss Junie Osmun, Holly, Mich, R.F.D.3"
