Tag Archives: lithographed postcard

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.



Interesting Old Postcard

Why, you ask, is the egregious example of tweeness interesting?
Okay, first, it’s dated.  1911, on the back.
It’s addressed to Blanche Gladson in Rogersville and I see a lot of cards addressed to her.  It’s from her brother, Hal.
It’s pre-WWI, embossed, and probably lithographed in Germany.  It was never mailed.
It’s got “postcard” printed in 13 different languages (it’s “open mail” in Russian) on the back.  There’s also either a printer’s mark or a guild mark in the lower left on the back.  Ask me if I care…
So, in Japanese, it’s “kawaii!”
