Red and New in ’52

roadliner

The Roadliner came on the market in the early ’50s.  I’ve seen references to this model in 1952.

A Typical Moonshine Still

I thought the guy on the right looked a little like Horace Kephart, but he died four years before this post card was published in 1935.

Florida Razor Back.

Cobb Shinn

This post card, dating from around 1915, was drawn by Cobb Shinn (Conrad X. Shinn).  References indicate that he produced around 165 designs for cards.  He moved to illustrating children’s books in the 1920s.

Natural Tunnel

This is an old card, pre-WWI, a collotype lithographed in Germany.  Pretty card, though, understandably, showing its age.

New Johnson City Country Club

Not only did someone trim this pre-WWI lithographed postcard down with scissors, but they also glued it (clutching of pearls, here) into an album.  It remains a nice looking card, though.

Henson Airlines

Henson, the original Piedmont.  This livery was used from 1983 to 1987.  As far as I can tell, Henson used these Short (Bros. of Belfast) SD3-30s from around 1979 to 1990.  This one went to Alleghany then was exported in ’91 to Canada, whence it had come.   This is another Mary Jayne’s Railroad Specialties postcards, airline series.
