I am very interested in postcards from any of the World's Fairs or Expos. I also collect postcards with these themes:
circus Disney Parks carnivals amusement parks county fairs drive-in movies state fairs
Hi, I'm looking for any postcards, greeting cards, playing cards or prints by Jennie Harbour. I'd like to purchase or trade for any I don't already have in my collection. I'm collecting these to reproduce in a book I'm writing about the life of Jennie Harbour. She illusrated for Raphael Tuck & Sons, Valentine & Sons and A. Vivian Mansell. These are the three I know of so far. Can anyone help me out?
I've added a few real photo postcards to my blog over the past month and so I thought I'd pass along a link:
Ran across 6 Chiropractic Cards from I believe the 20s they fold and have advertising on one side for the Cortland Institute of Chiropractic on the other are photo's of the Panama canal being built. One has Elbert Hubbard on the back giving praise for the Chiropractic business. I can't find anything like them would there be interest? And has anyone ever seen these before?
The cyanotype process was one of the first non-silver technologies used to create photographic images. Originated in the 1840's, it was not utilized in mainstream photography and was adopted as a copying technique, becoming known by the term "blueprint", with its blue background reproductions of large architectural and mechanical drawings. It was Anna Atkins who first brought this method to photography. Shown here is a British Cyanotype postcard of a boy holding flowers and wearing wooden shoes printed by the German firm of N.P.G. for E.J.Hey & Co., London. It is postmarked 1913.
