A previously unreported version of this card is shown above, with the standard green decorative border, but with the words “Owen Sound” added, and a red inset image, with red text “Poulett Street” added. The reverse, shown below, is slightly modified, with the words “Souvenir Post Card” rather than “Private Post Card”. It would appear from the date of use, September 5, 1904, compared with other cards seen in this series, (earliest reported date August 31, 1905), the card may have been a precursor to the Series 6 cards, before the Series 6 card design was finalized.
