This postcard shows what I think was the Mountain Highway (Highway 7) back around 1917 or earlier. The cars would be come down the hill into Ohop Valley.

The note on the back is unfortunately a sad one: Dear Brother and Family, Ben is much worse and is very helpless. We think he will never get up again and may go soon and may last several days. Your Sister Clara.
