The ship was registered to Lori L. H. Taylor. Sold but still available for scholarly study & research as an enlarged (about 771% of original print area) & enhanced 200-dpi scan in .jpg format. $2.00 m(h)fs(r)s(t)g(t)

"Elizabeth Taylor / New Mattamoras(sic) Ohio / Geo Taylor's / Sister // Nov. 1902" showing a lady playing an upright piano, diploma hanging on the nearby wall; uncaptioned (so we report all the writing on back) sepia-tone Azo (triangles up) real photo, oxidation consistent with circa-1910 age. We do not understand the date on back. This is Elizabeth N. Taylor of New Matamoras Ohio, born 15 September 1887--which would put her at age 23 or so in 1910. Sold but front side still available for scholarly study & research as an enlarged 300-dpi scan (publication quality) in .jpg format for $3.75. o(n)mg
TAYLOR. "LANGAN & TAYLOR STORAGE BUILDING / DELMAR & EUCLID AVES. / A16" circa 1907 - 1908 (unevenly divided back) postcard with advertising message printed as follows on back: 'Dear Madam / Our new Building is NOW READY to receive your Furniture, Pianos, and other valuable Goods. / Strictly Sanitary and Fire Proof / ... / Langan & Taylor S. M. Co.' (Storage & Moving Company), minor wear to the bottom corners. Rare: when we checked the Internet no one was offering it, exhibiting it, or even bragging about having sold it.

TEAGUE. "HUMPHREYS' / WITCH HAZEL OIL / (COMPOUND)" reads the advertising banner borne aloft by a Wright flyer, unsigned art copyrighted 1909 by Humphreys' Homeopathic Medicine Company on an advertising postcard for W. H. Teague of Lewiston Maine, preaddressed to manufacturer in New York City & requesting a free sample, blanks on back not filled in unevenly toned back. Message area lists very detailed claims for the oil's applicability Surely one of the earliest suggestions that aircraft could carry advertising banners, but the placement of the banner would have made more sense trailing behind the fast-moving aircraft, rather than hanging straight below it as if there were no wind. Another variant of this card replaces the aeroplane with a kite having such text. Either way, it's a rare image. $13.00 m(l)g(t)ac

Focus is good, but high-contrast means parts of the image are too bright to yield detail. $15.00 o(g)g(h)g(b)g(t)
THEANDER. "Ett godt nytt ĺr / till őmkar? af / Kusin Nanny" unsigned art showing a woman bicyclist with immodest (for the times) exposure of her legs, our caption from the Norwegian message written on front conveying a New Year greeting , Brefkort mailed 30 12 1902 in Sweden to Fröken Elsa Theander in Limhanm (where it arrived next day) by her cousin Nanny. $9.00 bg(t)n

But the 20th Century History of Delaware County, Ohio and Representative Citizens - Chicago, Ill. :: Biographical Pub. Co., 1908 by James R.

The address is that of the Lawson Milk Company. Three types of machines are shown. Our guess is that the lady -- Oleo Pearl Thompson as we learn from the writing on front -- is operating a label-making machine with a capping machine behind her. Possibly one-of-a-kind: no printed caption, no attributions to photographer or to publisher. Sold but front side still available for scholarly study & research as an enlarged (about 771% of original print area) & enhanced 200-dpi scan in .jpg format. $2.00 o(m)g(t)if

VOSS / TEAS / FRESH ROASTED COFFEE / THE STORE FOR QUALITY // TULLY THE TAILOR" a Cincinnati Ohio street scene with even more signage (which might yield under magnification because the depth-of-field is good), horse-drawn buggy in the foreground, 2 horse-drawn wagons near the storefronts; approximately 6"x5" sepia-tone photo with blank back, imperfectly rectangular, long upper corner crease in the sky. URKP abbreviates Uniform Rank of Knights of Pythias, no longer an official auxiliary of Pythianism. Necessarily after 1879 because of the ampersand in the Frechtling name. We found the tailor's address as 16 South Second Street in a December 15 1911 advertisement. Coston's Confectionery advertised in the August 38 1910 Cincinnati Enquirer. So we date this as circa-1910 to -1911. $20.00 o(c)f(k)g(c)g(f)g(t)g(v)

Sign at the top right: 'Dr. Bell's PINE-TAR-HONEY / COUGHS COLDS GRIP / STRENGTH TO THE LUNGS'.

The phrase about retarding the spark appeared in 1918 - 1927 advertising. The slogan about getting genuine parts appeared in 1919 - 1935. Thus we can date the piece to 1919 - 1927.

Henry Wagener, Mgr." real photo advertising card for turpentine, rosin oils, rosin, linseed oils, pitch & pine tar suggesting that the recipient paint up for the season & 'We will wait on you promptly' on back, small bottom corner creases, top corners with minor rounding, oxidation due to age. Their 144 Maiden Lane address is now but part of a skyscraper in the Financial District. The business lasted from 1897 until 1919, as best we can tell. Nonetheless their advertising cards are rare; most all were thrown away when the month was up. $8.00 cn(n)g(c)g(w)
WAHR. "Geo. Wahr University Hospitals // Greetings from / University / of Michigan" postcard mailed there 1907, album toning, small corner bend, minor corner wear elsewhere.

KERN, / SKAGWAY & / VALDEZ, / ALASKA // Hand-colored" postcard mailed JAN 24 1908 (clear & complete VALDEZ territorial cancel ties 1-c Franklin stamp) to Allegheny Pennsylvania, light album toning, minor corner rounding. Rare two different ways: (1) All hand-colored postcards are unique--if you find two they cannot possibly be identical; (2) You will not find two, just this one: no one else is showing this, offering this, or exhibiting this. There is a non-hand-colored version of this card that is, therefore, not as nice; still we have only seen that version once in 32+ years of dealing. $9.00 a(s)fg(w)-a

Y." postcard mailed at Oneonta NOV 13 1905 to Ed Rappleyea in Prattsville New York, extensive but light toning both sides probably from album contact.

WALLENDA. "Photo / 'Wallendas' / Feet-to-Shoulders / on chair / Ringling Circus 1934" Kodak real photo postcard with caption taken from writing on back, a couple dealer erasure marks on back. In those early days there were only 4 Wallendas. They were the only ones that could perform these dangerous feats, and they were indeed with Ringling in 1934. So the captioning on back checks out. Now consider the photography for a moment: no-blur action photo of a strongly backlit subject. Quite simply the best circus postcard we have ever seen. Probably one of a kind. We could find nothing like it on the internet. $85.00 cfgub

In the circus, the feat shown was duplicated with 7 full-grown lions. Rare. When we searched the Internet, no one was offering it & no one was even bragging about having sold it.

WEST. WOMAN'S BENEFIT ASSOCIATION
"'WESTHAVEN' GARDENS ON THE ST. CLAIR RIVER, PORT HURON, MICH., HOME OF MISS BINA M. WEST" black & white with sky ting, white-border era from Curt Teich, unused, lightly toned back. Founder in 1892 of one of the first fraternal benefit societies established for and managed by women, & an outspoken supporter of women's suffrage, she represented the National Council of Women of the US at the International Council of Women in Geneva in 1908. Undoubtedly this card was issued on the occasion of the dedication of the Society's new home office in 1917. Many people could not tell you who she is, but the fact that women can get life insurance these days is tribute to her legacy!
"SLEEPING BARRACKS AT LAKE HURON CAMP, WOMAN'S BENEFIT ASSOCIATION 113473" black & white with sky tint, white-border era from Curt Teich & Co, unused, light toning near one front corner. Most unusual subject matter--a little known aspect of this fraternal organization's history.

WOOD. "WALTER A. WOOD / FARM MACHINES / NOT MADE BY A TRUST" uncaptioned Azo (triangles up) sepia-tone real photo postcard, upper corner crease, slight pushpin indent at top center, minor corner wear. Our caption relates the sign at the left end of the building. While no caption date, annotation, or postmark is there to guide us, the card is necessarily late 1907 or later because of its divided back. Keeping in mind the headline-grabbing trust-busting activities of President Teddy Roosevelt during his September 1901 - March 1909 presidency, we thus have a fairly confident estimate this photograph was taken late 1907 - early 1909. Possibly unique: no caption, no publisher information, no photographer attribution.
