1909 RRPC of Lady & Child in Antique Auto, from Redlands CA to Portland ME

Real Photo Postcard sent from Redlands, California to Portland, Maine, in 1909.  The card is addressed to Mrs. H. S. Bishop, Richardson Street, Woodfords (a section of Portland).

I found a Hubert Stanley Bishop living in Portland in 1910 in April, as a boarder with Moses Rider and the Sampson family.  He married Ella E. Chadwick a couple months later, on 9 June 1910.

The postcard is dated 1909.  So I either have the wrong H. S. Bishop or Hubert was married to someone else in March of 1909.

If you have any insights into the identities of the sender "Jessie" in California or the recipient "Mrs. H. S. Bishop" in Woodfords, Portland, Maine, please let me know.  Thanks!
