Most decorative, lithographed, embossed postcard with Indians as they throw bags with tea into a river.
Entitled: " Boston Tea party Dec. 16, 1773". "There is a dignity, majesty, a sublimity in the last effort of the patriots".
The postcard has been sent to Kobe, Japan in 1906. Minor aging at the margins. No creasing though.
The Boston Tea Party was an act of direct action protest by the American colonists against the British Government in which they destroyed many crates of tea bricks belonging to the British East India Company on ships in Boston Harbor. The incident, which took place on Thursday, December 16, 1773, has been seen as helping to spark the American Revolution and remains to this day one of the most iconic events of the era.
