Here we have a fun wooden postcard printed on bird's eye maple, a souvenir that was available at the Department of Forestry during the Columbian Exposition of 1893 held in Chicago. The card is both novelty postcard and trade card for the E.D. Albro Company located in both Cincinnati, Ohio and New York City. The card says that the company specialized in veneers, hardwood lumber, cigar box lumber, mahogany, and cabinet lumber. It'sa different size than a regular postcard -- it emasures 3" tall and 5-1/2" across. There is no writing on the back and it was never sent by mail. The card is clean and very nice with just a tiny chip to bottom edge.
