This old Thanksgiving postcard features a colorful image of three children who are running down a walk with the lead boy carrying a very big turkey on his back. They must be running home to present the bird for the Thanksgiving meal. The face of the card has been lightly embossed to enhance the image. The card has Thanksgiving Greetings written in red in the lower right hand corner. It appears that the when the card was made and cut, it kept a small strip of the next card in the series along the upper edge because there is part of an image that does not belong with this card. The back of the card also carries just the faintest hint of the bottom printing of another card. The colors are bright and the image is pleasing. The condition is good with bumped corners.

The back of the card is divided for a message and an address. The card has been postally used with an intact stamp and a postmark from 1910 in Nebraska. The lower left edge of the back is imprinted with Printed in Saxony No. 741.

The message reads: It is nearly dark and we are in town so can’t write this time. We are well and so are John and Violet. I’ll write soon. Etta.

The card is addressed to: Mr. James Ward, Osceola Nebr. RFD No. 2 #39


I can mail multiple cards for the same amount as a single card, so if you purchase more than one card, please wail to pay until I have adjusted the postage for your purchase.
