    Undivided back, Pre-1907

    WHAT THE WILD WAVES ARE SAYING:
    Dainy miss, of germs be wary, Is your towel sanitary?
    Is it pure and sweet and fair?
    Like the ocean and the air? Is it soft and yet giving vim
    When you rub down from your swim?
    If it's all this, maid so chary,then it's surely
    SAN-KNIT-ARY.
    Under her feet:" SOUVENIR OF ATLANTIC CITY"

    On the red cross it says SAN-KNIT-ARY and under that
    Towels and Wash Cloths

    For duplicates of the card address the

    SAN-KNIT-TARY TEXTILE MILLS, PHILIDELPHIA
    Armington-Prov.
    Card in VG condition.
    In the category of "Advertiing Postcards" I have only this example, but hope to find more.
    The artwork here is wonderful!(unsigned)
    Love this Gibson Girls' striking red suit and tights!

      I 'm finding vintage advertising postcards like this with nice graphics are getting some high prices. I paid about twice the price for this as I usually do.

      I saw anoher of these last night on the internet at $19.95. I paid way less than that.
      Back in the day, by writing the company, one could order duplicates of this card. No price was given, possibly free with an order of their towels???There may be more of these postcards than you would expect.

      That "Gibson Girl" hair-do looks lovely and what a stylish bathing costume! That is what the more bold colored pieces were called , especially with matching tights--some may have frowned on a display such as this, Ha Ha!

      I had a heart attack and was in the hospital. That is why I have not been here. Regards, Lois

      Thank you! The long-term outlook is gloomy. If I can get back, I surely will. If not, Happy Halloween. Thanksgiving and Christmas!! Cheers! ,Lois postcardcollector
