    My camera simply couldn't handle the brightness of this postcard-- the intense red made it struggle to focus. I had to add a filter, as seen in pic two, to make it focus better.

    But, this is the brightest postcard I've ever seen. At only 75 cents (due to severe damage as seen,) I had to pick it up. The brilliant red automotive and brass headlamps drew me in.

    Another interesting thing is on the back: "Hope you don't meet any of those animals that scared Mr. [I cannot read it.]"

    Anyone know the make and model?

      Get yourself a scanner they are pretty cheap. I just got a new scanner and it makes posting much easier and better.

      The lithography company here did a good job of redoing the photo, hovever it could be reduced a lot better in photoshop these days.
    5. bladerunner22 bladerunner22, 4 years ago
      fortapache is right, a scanner would help. Once you have one you never would go back to not having one. Might be a good one on the cheap internet sites and maybe the owner would install for you.

      It looks to be a Cleveland.

      1925 Peerless Concept car? 1909?
    12. Trey Trey, 4 years ago
      1909 Peerless Raceabout.
    13. Celiene Celiene, 4 years ago
      Sweet! WANT!!!
    14. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 4 years ago
      You dun good Trey ! I think the Cleveland. Sure is a long tube for a horn.
    15. SpiritBear, 4 years ago
      I do alright with photography in most cases. But thanks for the tip on the scanner.

      I agree with the Cleveland. I saw two others of this card online, postmarked 1909 and 1910.

      Thanks for the help and comments. :)
    16. Celiene Celiene, 4 years ago
      Nope - it's the Peerless. Look at the box on the running board.
    17. Celiene Celiene, 4 years ago
      The Cleveland doesn't even have a running board. GREAT cars, though! WHEN I win the lottery.....
    18. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 4 years ago
      OK Celiene, I bend ! Peerless !
    19. SpiritBear, 4 years ago
      Got a bottle for that (Peerless Creamery.) LOL.
    20. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 4 years ago
      Do you nee an address to send it to ?
    21. SpiritBear, 4 years ago
      I'll drive over in my fire-engine red Peerless. :)
    22. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 4 years ago
      I'll meet you half way in my British racing green Auburn.
    23. SpiritBear, 4 years ago
      And I'm sure that has much better fuel efficiency. LOL.
    24. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 4 years ago
      You think ? Well, we still have to on a bridge anyway. 1,200 mi. is a long bridge ! That's just to Key West !!
    25. SpiritBear, 4 years ago
      I could vacation down in Florida right now. :P
    26. Trey Trey, 4 years ago
      Come to Florida I got a spare room:) I need a babysitter LOL!!!
    27. Celiene Celiene, 4 years ago
      LOL! Either way - they are STUNNING cars! I love that there are still living examples!
    28. SpiritBear, 4 years ago
      Nice try, Trey. :P

      I agree, Celiene. :)
