I find a certain fascination in simple, quite mundane messages written on postcards close to 100 years ago. Here is one postmarked ‘o4 from Newcastle, addressed to Gateshead. Get out my map! The reverse side is a rather cute image of kittens.
If you recall yesterday’s post I showed 2 new postcards which were tied for 1st place in my purchases at the Vintage Postcard Fair in Kent. Well here’s my 3rd favorite card among those purchased.
A tie between 2 postcards
Category – Cats posted in January 1906 in Bak Bay to a recipient in the Back Bay area – a cat lover?
Vintage postcard – note the title – Their First Quarrel
Champion Bull Dog
When I first saw this postcard I thought the dog was rather ugly. But with time I’ve mellowed and I’ve become rather fond of this vintage card postmarked 1911, Binghamton New York.
