Change the Date Novelty Congratulations Postcard 1908

By: N/A

Price: $16.95

Publisher: Unknown: 1909

Seller ID: 0139

Condition: 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. View more info

Price: $20.00

Publisher: Akron, Ohio, Long & Taylor Comopany: 1909

Seller ID: 1333

Condition: Good


Depicted in this photo is the second court house in Akron, Ohio. It was completed in 1908 and there on the steps are the first jury in the new building. The card is postmarked January 25, 1909 and was sent to Edna Stocksdale of Dundee, Ohio. The message appears to have been partially erased and is virtually unreadable. Card also shows some smudges at back, but the main problem is a horizontal crease to entire card. The good news is it's in no danger of snapping off and is not hugely noticeable. This is an uncoomin card and I have placed it in a plastic sleeve. View more info

Leather Postcard Easter Greeting

By: N/A

Price: $8.00

Publisher: 1907

Seller ID: 0034

Condition: Good


Leather postcards were quite the fad in the early 19th century. What appears to be stitching around the edges of this one is not -- it's faux stitching. Many leather cards tend to be humorous, but here we have a nice Easter greeting with a pretty girl on an egg. There is no message -- just the address to Miss Josephine Hickey of Scio, Ohio. Note small stain over the H which caused the ink to run. Otherwise very nice. View more info

Very pretty depiction of an Akron, Ohio landmark. The card is very nice in its plastic sleeve and retains a one cent stamp which covers the manufacturer's name. Only fault is a small bit of bleed-through from the postmark visible above the roof of the house - minor. The card was sent to Lodi, Ohio and the message (with errors) is as follows: "Am feeling fine. How is the weather their? I have my sweater coat on in the house. Bertha and Charlie went to Cleveland this morning. I will half to work Monday night. Sat. night was a busy one. Be home Sat. night some time. Arthur K." View more info

What a cutie this is! Three little chicks take over a nest with a big red Easter egg and oust their featherd friends with their plain white one. The card is brightly colored with a slightly shiny surface, and is lightly embossed. There is virtually no edge wear. The divided back has been used and the stamp placed at a jaunty angle. It's addressed to Master (Illegible) West of Creston,Ohio. The message is dated March 16, 1910, but is very hard to decipher. Here's my best effort (with misspellings): "Dear Sir, I certently sea (?) how you enjoy thorz good old spring days and (illegible). I did th... View more info

Very bight and clean postcard which was filled out but never sent. The message is funny because Lodi is still a very small town and has no hotel at all these days. The card was addressed to Miss Lura Sheehan Alliance, Ohio. On the other side of the dividing line it reads "Hello, Lura -- You will think I have died, but I am very much alive. Now will you make fun of Lodi when we have a hotel like this? Come up if you don't believe it is truly here. Blanche." View more info

The perfect card for people who don't like to write messages! This one actually has one and it was mailed from Seville, Ohio to Bertha Randall of Medina, Ohio -- not too far! It reads with misspelling, "Are you coming with your Ma when she comes. Ma doesn't feal quite herself this morn. (last sentence unreadable)" The sender may be Nelle Horn, as this name is written in the upper left corner. Card is undated but clearly. given furnishings and clothing on the front, it dates from around 1910. The card is in great conditon save browning to corners from having been kept in an album.

Novelty postcards are fun and this leather one is perfect for a collector of postcards -- as it expresses the idea of trading cards with firneds to build a collection -- "Here's My Postcal Card Send Me Yours, I Am Collecting Post Cards." Under this is a line for adding one's name and Charles Patton took advantage of it. He mailed the card Dec. 3, 1907 from Warren, Ohio to Miss Edina Vanderslice of Garrettsville, Ohio. View more info

This charming color scene is one that's rarely found of the Club House at Turkeyfoot Lake, Akron, Ohio which was a summer resort.

It has a divided back and stamp box shows the cost of postage as a penny for domestic,island possessions, Canafa, Cuba, Mexico and Panama and two cents for overseas. View more info

Condition: Good


I puzzled over this one, as it does not say WHAT Newport Football High School team this is. I doubt greatly it's Rhode Island. In fact, given the barn in the background, and the fact that it came from an Ohio collection I would bet on Newport, Ohio. Check out the two guys with the Mohawks! Anyway, it's an interesting picture with a small crease to the lower left corner and spots of isolated edge wear. It was never sent in the mail and there is no message. It's printed on AZO photographic paper and the symbols on the stamp box date it from 1904-1918. View more info

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. View more info

This card was republished later by a bookstore, but this is the early one. There's a nice description on the back, but the postmark obscures it a bit. Basically it says that the trading post was a "headquarters for Indians and their curios" located in a three story building modeled after Indian architecture. A Navajo sweat house is next to it where the Medicine man cured the sick. Card was sent to Francis Russell of Minerva, Ohio from New Mexico. The message on the divided back reads, "June 4, '19.

How charming -- a picnic with no coolers, no grills, nothing but a pretty place, hampers of food, friends and family, and mown grass to sit on. This event took place in 1911 in the Ohio River town of St. Mary's, W. Va., a very small place which got its name from a man who claimed to have seen the Virgin Mary pass by on the river in a boat. The card was postmarked April 21, 1911 from St. Mary's and sent to Mary Morgan of Logan, Ohio. The message on the divided back reads, "Dear Cousin, Glad to hear from you. Am very busy, will answer your letter as soon as I can. A crowd of us were over home ... View more info

Such a pleasant-looking lady, seemingly small in stature, yet wearing an enormous hat which looks like it's wearing her! But she still manages to be pretty and her locket and lacy dress are charming. This card was never sent. In the lower right hand corner there is an embossed name and address of the studio which took the picture, but some of the raised letters have disappeared with no loss of color, oddly enough. What I can make out is "East ---- Studio, 225 E. Main, Newark, Ohio. Card shows a light crease to lower corner where the studio address is and a touch of wear to the tip of the corne...

Very pretty card in pastels and very imaginative too. The card is embossed and clean and attractive. It was sent Feb. 11th, 1910 to Bertha Randall, Medina Ohio from her cousin who lived in next-door Seville. The message, written in pencil, reads, "Dear Cousin, Will be there with bells on. Will get there about 4:10 or 4:20. Mabel." This is an interesting message for two reasons. One is the slangy "be there with bells on", a comment which remains part of the vernacular today. The other reason is the specific times quoted. Mabel must have been taking the interurban from Seville, Ohio to Medina,... View more info
