THE BEACH AT VARADERO, CARDENAS, CUBA. 110658" with its expansive &
beautiful beach deserted on a sunny day (huh?!), unused 1926 postcard made
by Curt Teich & Co. for the Cuban National Tourist Commission, excellent
condition. Our dating comes from the printer's code. Do you suppose that
commission would have preferred a view showing many people enjoying the
natural beauty of the spot? We think so, and in so doing we have an
explanation for the rarity of the postcard! When we searched the Internet we
found one past offer only, no recorded sales & none on exhibition. $10.00

"THE SUNDAY HERALD--BOSTON, FEBRUARY 25 / Mr. and Mrs. T. K. Hastings Riding in a Tri-Car / In Havana and Equipped for a Journey Into the Suburbs" circa-1907 advertising postcard for Indian motorcycles reproducing the article with its illustration for a contemporaneous & enterprising salesman, Undivided back, minor corner & edge wear, 2 short internal creases from the right front center. Theodore K. Hastings was the Vice President of the Federation of American Motorcyclists. He was out of Flatbush, Brooklyn, New York City and made publicity trips abroad to Cuba & England, competing successfully at times. His activity continued at least into 1908 where we found numerous different mentions of him in Vol. LVII of the Bicycling World & Motorcycle Review. Pertinent personal message handwritten on front complements the advertising intent: 'Dear Veda. Have just returned from an 800 mile trip on my Indian. The Hendee Co Spring-field, Mass make them but your local dealer will show you. They are fast, cheap and economical, and it dont(sic) take an expert to run it and keep it going. Want one. Harry'. Rare: no one else can show you this. The reason you do not see any more of these is probably because the newspaper objected to the use of all its presumably copyrighted article, text and illustration, for an unintended commercial purpose of another business. That was also the probable reason the card was mailed under cover, instead mailing exposed to public view as a postcard. After paying to make them, the salesman still wanted to use them, even when pressured by the Boston Herald! Sold but front side still available for scholarly study & research as an enlarged 300-dpi scan (publication quality) in .jpg format for $3.75. can(b)m(b)nmg(h)

Patriographic® American-Souvenir-Card with undivided back, mailed JAN 17 1905 from McAlester Indian Territory to miss Nattie Macoubrie in Olathe Kansas, back heavily toned from album contact, recipient docketing "Ans. Jan 21-'05". Protected means that the ship had an armored deck just below the waterline to guard against fragments from exploding shells above, but to dispense with the side armoring which slowed the previous generation of cruisers. The Newark participated in the blockade of Cuba, the bombardment of Manzanillo & the Battle of Santiago de Cuba during the Spanish-American War. During the same war, the Charleston served in the Pacific, helping to take Guam & Subic Bay in the Philippines among its accomplishments; but it wrecked beyond salvage on a reef near Luzon November 2nd 1899. So it is the harder ship to find on postcard. $25.00 s(m)cgp-i
