Postcard New York City Fire Fighters 1921
2 Postcard New York City Fire Fighters 1921
New york No publisher indicated 1921 Very good condition 
Great action image of the New York City Fire Department fighting a 1921 blaze. There's no indication as to what part of the city it was, as the reverse side shows no explanation, no message, and no postage. The back is not divided and the only writing is a penciled note which reads "N.Y. City Fire Dept, 1921" and a number, perhaps from an earlier dealer. The back also shows a bit of paper adhered to left hand side, likely from having been tipped into an album. Card is over-sized at 3-3/4" x 6". will arrive in plastic sleeve. 
Price: 12.00 USD

Postcard The Taft, Hotel Taft New York City
3 Postcard The Taft, Hotel Taft New York City
New York Unknown Publisher Unknown Date Fine Condition 
This is as good as a postcard gets -- very crisp and clean with sharp corners and no names or writing on the divided back. It does have a one cent stamp affixed, but was never mailed. The hotel opened in 1926, so if it were an early card it would have had a 2 cent stamp as prices raised briefly from 1925 to 1928. The hotel, a 22 story building, was named after President William Howard Taft and located on 7th Avenue at 50th Street. The Taft was Time Square's largest hotel with 2000 rooms. Card will arrive in brand new plastic sleeve.

Postcards New York City Statue of Liberty, Zeppelin (nien cards)
5 Postcards New York City Statue of Liberty, Zeppelin (nien cards)
New York Manhattan Card Publishing Co Very good 
There are no dates on these beautiful unused cards, but judging by the cars in the one scene it would appear that they're vintage 1930's. All have a divided back with no writing and a moderately shiny surface. Scenes include:the New Madison Square Garden, the Soldiers' and Sailors' Monument, the Zeppelin flying over City Hall Park, an airship flying over the Statue of Liberty, the Grand Central Office Building,the Paramount Building, the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, the Queensboro Bridge and the Roxy Theatre. All cards are clean with just a small bit of isolated edge and tips of corner wear. 
Price: 24.00 USD
