A Farmers Love Letter, 1909


A rebus is a device dating back to the middle ages that uses pictures to represent words or parts of words. This charming rebus puzzle  was created by a Stella Gilbert of Council Bluffs Iowa in 1909. Some versions were over-printed with an advertisement for Sawdey and Hartner, a seed company in Denver, Colorado. Can you crack the fruit and vegetable code?
