Publisher: New York, Unknown Publisher: Unknown Date

Seller ID: 1805

Condition: 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. View more info

Publisher: New york, No publisher indicated: 1921

Seller ID: 2429

Condition: 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. View more info
