This old postcard pokes a little fun at the rites and tradition of Freemasonry. A dashing gentleman appears to be stealing a kiss from a lovely young woman but the caption reads; A Mason giving the Password. In the upper right corner of the postcard is the F & AM Masonic emblem (Free and Accepted Masons) and if you look closely you can see that the young man has a Freemason’s pin on his lapel. It looks like the first name of the artist for this image was August but I am unable to make out the rest. The back has the elk logo of Taylor Pratt & Co. of New York. It has correspondence on the back but the stamp has come off or has been removed. It has a cancelation date of 1912.
It measures about 3 ½” by 5 ½” and is fairly nice condition with minor edge, corner and crease wear and light soiling.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
