For the typewriter collector, here are two antique postcards featuring typewriters. The Edwardian girl is posed in front of a real typewriter (this card is franked 1908) and the Edwardian woman is posed in front of an illustrated collage. The postmark on this card is not complete but looks also to be 1908/9. One card is glossy and the other matte. I have included direct scans and photos in an effort to accurately show the colors. Slight silvering on the card with the girl but virtually no surface wear. Top right corner has a crease. PLEASE NOTE: The scan on this card makes it look like there is a large line/scratch across the girl's face/hair. Please don't believe what you see:) Look at the photos and you'll notice no such scratch shows up. What the scan is picking up is a scratch that is barely visible with the naked eye. I only found it myself by holding the card at an angle and looking for it after seeing how brutal the scan was. On the card with the woman, the gold embossed lettering is a nice touch. I don't know if you can enlarge it enough to see, but I found it amusing on the typewriter illustration that there was no attempt to accurately recreate the placement of letters and numbers. Numbers are on the second row from bottom and the third row up is alphabetical order from M through Y. Both cards are typical antique card size: about 3.5 by 5.5 inches.
