Larimer County historic horse postcard: Where the french fries came from in 1908

… or did they even have french fries in 1908? This historic horse postcard, hand dated and postmarked, November 13, 1908, shows horses in two different jobs during a potato harvest in “Northern Colorado”. This appears to actually be the Edwards Farm in our very own Larimer County, Colorado, based on an identical black and white photo in the Fort Collins History Connection. The back of the postcard needs deciphering, something very cryptic involving “mathematics” and “quart” and “receipt”, I think.
