This Eiffel Tower postcard is not as pristine as most of the items I offer, but it's a rare standout in its own way, torn corners and all! I'm assuming that it was roughly removed from an album and hence the three corners damaged. Such a shame and yet ... that historical stamp is well preserved: Sommet de la Tour Mai 21, 1890. (The Eiffel Tower officially opened to the public May 6, 1889.) The sender didn't mail the postcard until the next day, mailed to Sophia Mulhauser in Cleveland, Ohio. (Note the New York stamping dated June 3.) The message on the front of this postcard has faded during the last 128 years, but it is still partially readable. "Dear Sopie ... your Pa and myself send you our love and greet ... the highest point of...the people look like toys ... horses and carriages look like little poodle dogs ... ." About 5.5 by 3.5 inches.
