Owner: Isadore Kabakoff / April 6, 1926 / A. MALKIN, Inc. / Civil Engineers
& Surveyors / ... / CINCINNATI - - OHIO" 10"x7Ľ" document with 4.7"x3.7"
photograph attached, paper-clip indent to the photo prior to attachment,
blank back except for a pencilled check mark (which would probably erase
well). Dimensions mentioned are approximate. The building is still there,

NEW / NEU / NOUVEAU
KAESTNER. "SORAU, N.-L. Markt / Verlag Rauert & ..." black & white street scene showing the storefronts of Carl Kaestner & Theod. Weichold (among others), postcard mailed there 1902 to Chicago but stamp removed thinning a back corner & creating a small tear, arrival cancel ink on front, corner wear & rounding, small corner crease. The full name of the city is Sorau in der Niederlausitz. Sold but still available for scholarly study & research as a full-size & enhanced 72-dpi scan in .jpg or .tif format. $1.50 pg(k)g(w)
KANE. "The Arctic Regions. / The Humboldt Glacier, North Greenland / 200 feet high, 60 miles long. Discovered and named by Dr. E. K. Kane, 1853." with signed Albert Operti art depicting native kayakers for scale, Tuck Oilette Postcard 7339, unused, printed in England, minor corner wear, colors fairly fresh. $9.50 ga(o)g(k)th

Stamp overhangs the top edge so a couple of perfs got bent; tiny bottom corner crease nowhere near the image. Nice you-are-there type of feeling from the photography. $12.00 cgl-c
KAUFMAN. "A Merry Christmas / Amos Wilson Kaufman / Rural Letter Carrier. Route No. 2" circa-1910 postcard with 4-stanza poem printed on the message side, addressed simply to 'Joe Wert and family'. Ordinarily items like this are hard to place, because a location is not specified -- but not this one! The carrier's name is sufficiently distinctive that only one such name is found in a Google search: this man & his wife both buried in Oakland Cemetery in Auburn Township, just outside of Tiro Ohio (Crawford County). Cinching the deal is the addressing: there are many Wert families living in Crawford County. So Amos Wilson worked out of the Tiro Post Office, most likely servicing rural people he knew in Auburn Township. $16.00 o(a)o(t)pg-ro PRICE REDUCED RECENTLY

Cover is rough, with a lot of pencil writing, toning both sides & other wear; it is handstamped 'W. C. NEU GARAGE / WINCHESTER , OHIO'.

NEUFELD. "ASSOUAN / Carl Neufeld, / le prisonnier du Mahdi" showing him with a monkey on a balcony in the Anglo-Egyptian Sudan, circa 1910 - 1912; unused postcard numbered 64 on its divided back, tiny left bottom corner crease, light toning along 2 back edges. During his imprisonment & exploitation by the Sudanese religious leader Muhammad Ahmad bin Abd Allah (the Mahdi or 'guided one'), he wore about 60 pounds of chains at all times. So this image is obviously after he had been freed, when he was staying at Aswan with his sister during the time we quote here. Someday we have no doubt his adventures (and misadventures!) will make an interesting movie. SALE IN PROGRESS spge#
