The postcard bears a postmark dated October 19, 1911 and a note written by Dr. Watson to a Miss Watson, of Cheshire, England. The note reads: "This is a picture of our block. We occupy the rooms on the left side of the first floor including the end one facing which is one of the windows in my waiting room. The entrance is seen to the right. The photo has been taken from Edmonds Station. Both car lines run into New Westminster, that on the right is the most direct one. The one on the left goes round via East Burnaby and at present its terminus is below our window. Your letter of the 14th [illegible] will answer more fully soon. We are well. So sorry to hear of that terrible motor accident. Yours, G."
