An old business card for a local psychic. The person who sold me this card said it was from the 1940s, but I can't verify that. However, I can still pin its age down somewhat. I checked through several old Portsmouth city directories and found that the last year Portsmouth used five-digit phone numbers (anybody remember those???) was 1964. The card is probably even older than that though because it refers to Deep Creek as being a part of Portsmouth. Deep Creek is part of Chesapeake and Chesapeake was formed at the beginning of 1963. Also, note how she does confidential readings
"for both White and Colored," so it may pre-date the Civil Rights movement.
At the moment, that's the best I can do.
