1 "Seated at the organ I was weary and ill at ease" The Lost Chord Vintage Postcard
New York The Knapp Company Unknown Near fine 
This is the prettiest card I've seen using a line from F. Earl Christy's poem "The Lost Chord." Most of them are in black and white with a rather disheveled background, though more of the verse. This shows only the first line -- clearly it's part of a series -- which reads "Seated one day at the organ I was weary and ill at ease ..." The small center graphic is lovely and makes for an understated, elegant card. It has not been postally used and there is no writing. It's numberd 381.

2 "The Incline Smile" Mt. Manitou Scenic Incline Car Color Postcard (Colorado)
Unknown 1910 Good 
Love this one! A full color view of an early tourist ride in Manitou Springs, Colorado. The "incline car", as they called it, was built in 1907 to support the construction of a hydroelectric plant and its waterline. When that was done a Dr. Brumbach bought it as a tourist attraction. It was a steep 16 minute ride through the glories of the Colorado mountains. Sadly, it had to be abandoned after a rock slide in 1990. The card is clean and nice, but does show tiny spote of light edge wear and a small chip from the tip of the lower corner. The divided back has this message, "I am still in Colorado Springs. E.R." It was sent to Miss Clara Bergman, Concordia, Missouri. The card will arrive in a plastic sleeve

A Happy Easter Squeaker Postcard Peeps 1912
4 A Happy Easter Squeaker Postcard Peeps 1912
1912 
Novelty postcards are fun, especially the older ones with squeakers. It makes for a puffy card that I can't imagine sending in the mail, though fortunately, this one never was mailed. All you have to do is press and you can hear these little peeps on Easer morning. The card has a message on its divided back to Miss Grace Wolfinger. The message reads "With best Easter wishes from Mr. and Mrs. Gess (or Hess) April 7th 1912.

5 A Happy New Year Bird Series Postcard Large Red Bird in Pine Boughs 1910
Unknown 1910 Very good 
The greeting, A Happy New Year, is hiding in the pine boughts in the lower left hand corner, so is easy to miss. But what a handsome card this is! It's gilded and embossed with a bold image superimposed over a small winter vignette. Lovely! This card was sent to a Mrs. C. Nundahl of Perry, North Dakota. The message reads, "Dear friend, Your card received. Thanks. It is a fine ? you have. Wish I could visit you sometime. Let us send cards once in a while. Best wishes for a Happy New Year.

A Happy New Year Girl with Clock Postcard 1906-08 Raphael Tucks & Sons
6 A Happy New Year Girl with Clock Postcard 1906-08 Raphael Tucks & Sons
Raphael Tucks & Sons 1906-08 Very Good 
There's much to like about a Tucks postcard and this one is no exception woth its heavy embossing, especially on the clock, and it's decorative border and gilding. The one shows very little wear. The last digit of the postmark date is obscured, but I think it's either a six or an eight. The message just says From Mabel, but it sas written to Sophie Nundahl of Perry, North Dakota. I seem to have a lot of Spophie's cards!

Cedar Point, Sandusky, Ohio Arcade Photo Co. Fine 
Are we having fun yet? Every time I look at this card I have to laugh. Five tourists aboard a fake boat in the arcade at the site of Ohio's grand amusement park and not a smile in the bunch, including the two clutching teddy bears! Still, this is one of my all-time favorite real photos! It was never sent, there's no stamp, no writing and no edgewear. Photo was printed on AZO photographic paper.

Change the Date Novelty Congratulations Postcard 1908
19 Change the Date Novelty Congratulations Postcard 1908
Unknown 1909 Very good 
This is a truly unique postcard, as there are two operating wheels which allow you to change both the month and the day. Both work very well, but you have to grasp the slim edges with your nails to do it. Quite a novelty and very pretty in pastel. The card was mailed with no message to Bertha Randall of 310 W/. Smith Road, Medina, Ohio -- right here when I am! Only fault is an erasure at front of green mailbox where name of sender had been.
