    Hello, this old postcard is blank (on front and back), so I'm having trouble dating it? I have come across several sites that are great for dating postcards throughout my years of researching, but without ANYTHING to go by, I'm having a hard time. It is a very cool card though, and made of really hard (almost like cardboard) paper.

      Than you!
      But what is it...that is to say, what kind of postcard is it? I don't get it's point, ha?
    2. gingerakesler gingerakesler, 9 years ago
      So, according to that link, this is pre-1900 according to the back "post card", is that correct?
    3. gingerakesler gingerakesler, 9 years ago
      Ok, well I just was directed to this site...

      And, it is indeed like my card, but why is mine not colored or signed?

      This reminds me of the old line 'I live by the lake. Drop in.'

      Well, yes...it does! What a pleasant surprise to get a reply to this post so long from the original. I will look into that, and thanks!

      Kudos to Hem, very interesting bit of history behind the cartoon.
