The card itself is printed on multi-ply paperboard by Warburgs Kunst-Forlag Kobenhavn Eneret. That choice of stock is a fine-arts choice used in graphic printing to impart strength & resistance to creasing; it was "to create the highest possible quality" (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paperboard) because the printer had a greater selection of coatings to use. Jacob Christian Ellehammer was a Danish inventor who is credited with the world's first air-cooled radial engine, a monoplane, a semi-biplane, a triplane & a helicopter. This is very hard to find. The only other example we found was also postmarked in 1909. Because our postcard was cut from the left edge of the sheet, our example has more of the design showing at the left than the previously auctioned example. Sold but front side still available for scholarly study & research as an enlarged 300-dpi scan (publication quality) in .jpg format for $3.75. da(p)c

Gas lights could be left on all the time, but that was expensive. The proper way to extinguish such a lamp was to twist the valve at its bottom (seen here), turning off the gas.

"Warning of approach / Art IV.(5). He shall / give audible and sufficient warning .. when overtaking / foot passengers .. / ..." with signed Chas. Crombie (Charles Edward Crombie) comic art depicting a motorcyclist using his horn to warn pedestrians, a pig & some ducks of his approach along a country path; postcard from the Reo Series, printed in Germany, former owner's handstamp neatly on back, minor corner wear. The law quoted was the British Motor Car Act of 1903 (which went into effect in 1904). It differentiated for the first time between motorcars and motorcycles. A bell was another approved method spelled out in the law for warning pedestrians, but we wonder -- if the pedestrian could not hear the motorcycle, why would the horn or bell be heard?
