Carrier Route No. 4" postcard with long poem pre-printed in the
message area, partially erased pencil-writing in the address area, minor
corner wear. $4.50 gpc
CAIN. "Belle Isle Pleasure Boat, / Detroit, Mich." at the foot of Woodward Avenue, showing many passengers on all decks; postcard mailed there 1910 to Miss Hazel E. Cain in St. John Kansas by her mother Cora, mild corner wear. Ship owner was the Detroit, Belle Isle and Windsor Ferry Company. $4.75 m(d)s(d)g
CALDWELL. "Spring Millinery Display / Beginning March 25, 1909 / Frances Caldwell / 110 E. FIFTH ST. - DAYTON, O." advertising postcard mailed at Dayton Ohio March 22 1909 to Mrs. Nathan Feinberg of that city, light album marks at 3 corners, light surface abrasion at the other corner (hard to notice at first). There is an artist's signature at the back of her neck but it is hard to read even under magnification. Rare: when we found no others offered, displayed, or even mentioned when we searched the Internet. $15.00 mgoa
CALLAGHAN. "MAIN ST. BELLEVUE, OHIO." showing many carriages & buggies parked in the vicinity of Callaghan Grocer opposite A. Rupping Dry Goods & Carpets, sepia-tone mailed at Clyde 1910, area of yellowish toning on back, corner wear. Postcard sold. Still available for scholarly study & research as a full-size & enhanced 72-dpi scan in .jpg or .tif format. $1.50 omg(c)g(r)
CAMPBELL. "Residence of Dr. Campbell Powell, O." sepia-tone real photo post card, mailed there 1909, good focus & contrast & composition.

CANADAY. GARDEN CITY, GULF & NORTHERN RAILROAD. "Construction work on the G. C. G. & N. R. R. A. J. Canaday, Contractor" unused sepia-tone Azo (triangles up) real photo postcard, long corner crease & 2 long internal creases from the top edge. This single-track short line (37+ miles) rail road was entirely in Kansas, connecting Scott City to Garden City. Construction began in 1907 & was completed in early 1910. Thus we can date the divided-back postcard within late-1907 to early-1910. That is a Reeves tractor & a five-man crew doing the work. The short Wikipedia article on this rail road expresses uncertainty as to the claim of construction by the Kansas Construction & Irrigation Company. Here is photographic proof about one who actually did the work, or at least part of the work, possibly as a subcontractor to them! Belongs in a museum! $100.00 r(g)k(g)g NEW / NEU / NOUVEAU

Note the unusual placement of the horse beside the car, instead of in front or in back. Unused sepia-tone real photo Cyko postcard with good contrast & focus, trivial corner wear. A little pen writing neatly near the bottom edge: "OK Show" probably a photographer's proof offered to the Capo family that never made it to commercial postcard status -- at least when we looked we could not find a single example exhibited or offered on the internet.

COEY. "The COEY BICYCLE ATTACHMENT / Invented and patented by C. A. Coey. / Fits any bicycle. Weighs only eight pounds. / Can be folded when not in use. Can be attached in / three minutes. Greatest seller of the age. Agents / wanted. Order today. First order secures agency. / PRICE $12.00 / C. A. COEY & CO. / D-1424 Michigan Avenue / CHICAGO ILLINOIS" postcard with an enlarged black & white illustration of the attachment on back, mailed 1908 to the Romeo Electric Light Plant at Romeo Michigan. Astonishing illustration: a man, woman & child each on their own bicycle riding a railroad track, stabilized to the rail they are not on by the device. [And, hopefully, not encountering a train coming from the other direction! The postcard never stated the detachment time!] This device ostensibly made a smooth paved road out of a railroad track, or so they thought. By showing a family on an outing, the ad is essentially saying "Safe enough for your entire family." By showing a woman riding a bicycle not in a public place and with her husband, she is not being depicted as the loose woman some of her day might have thought. No other offers or displays of this advertising when we searched the internet; all we could find were black & white ads that appeared in a few magazines & journals of the time. So the inventors did try to make money from the invention, but evidently their efforts did not last long. Surprised? We venture to say that the publicity of a few unfortunate accidents put this bad idea to a well-deserved rest. Hopefully not many horrific family outings resulted. $180.00 bi(c)ar(u)fg(c)
COLBURN. "Words of Comfort" with Thomas Faed art portraying a man reading to his family from their Bible, circa 1890 trade card, ad on back for Dr. Jayne's Expectorant from merchant John F.

Kroeger & Sons pianos are still noted for their exceptional quality & design, somewhat simpler than the highly carved Victorian styles. The Addison part of the caption is a small village in Lenawee County; the Tecumseh on the wagon may be in case the onlooker had not heard of Addison.

Vynita was a teacher & long-time member of the Ohio State Teachers Association, which helps to explain the unusual subject matter. Holmesville is a small village (about 300 people now, probably less in 1906) in the Prairie Township of Holmes County Ohio. Sold but front side still available for scholarly study & research as an enlarged 300-dpi scan (publication quality) in .jpg format for $3.75. o(h)s(b)g

DREW. Uncaptioned sepia-tone real photo
postcard showing a lady with 2 children & a dog posed on a Kerry
motorcycle with side car & English license plate H.5084. Mailed OCT 2 1909 from
London to Miss Alice Turner (staying at a hotel in Crewkerne Somerset). The name
Kerry is plainly on the motor to the left of the boy's foot; the teenage girl's
dress probably covers the company logo on the fuel tank. The basket for the side
car has an interesting history. From 1904 to 1907 Kerry made a Tri-Kar, which
was a three-wheel motorized bicycle on which passengers rode up front in a large
basket, with supporting wheels on either side of them. [You can view the Tri-Kar
in an advertisement in the November 1st 1904 The Motor.] The Kerry Company
manufactured motorcycles until 1915, according to the authoritative
cybermotorcycle.com/euro/brands/kerry.htm. We see from this rare photograph that
they put their sturdy-basket-making know-how to work on side cars in their later years.
Notice how English side cars were to the driver's left, in contrast to American
side cars which were to the driver's right. That difference arose because
respective drivers drove on different sides of the road. Alongside the
handwritten communication on back is a neat handstamp reading 'S. E. DREW, 11,
Westbourne Rd. Barnsbury, N.', a fairly fashionable London residential address
to this day, who was the sender. Altogether a rare image: we could not
find any other image of a Kerry motorcycle with side car when we searched the
