HOLD-TO-LIGHT POSTCARDS & POST CARDS

"A Bicycle is not a Racycle. / Without Racycle Crank Hanger / Why is a CHEAP bicycle like this Lady? / (HOLD TO THE LIGHT) / MORAL: / BUY A RACYCLE / The Henderson Litho. Co. Col." sexist hold-to-light advertising card: when held to light you see the woman's figure in silhouette with exceptionally skinny hips & legs over the words (now showing) 'A FINE FINISH BUT A POOR FRAME'. Slightly longer than a continental postcard. Handstamped in violet on back: 'ED. BORDERWICH, / Sale Agt. / 331 E. 8rd. St. DAYTON, O. / Telephone, 469'. Paper browning with age, 3 horizontal creases so it could be folded into quarters. Rare: nothing like it offered, or even displayed, when we searched the Internet. Sold but front side still available for scholarly study & research as an enlarged (about 771% of original print area) & enhanced 200-dpi scan in .jpg format. $2.00 bhsgo





"A CONSUMPTIVE PATIENT / HOLD TO THE LIGHT AND NOTE / HOW HER LIFE WAS SAVED" printed ad for Allen's Lung Balsam shows through from back, small corner crease & minor edge wear, circa 1890 ad card. Sold but still available for scholarly study & research as an enlarged (about 771% of original print area) & enhanced 200-dpi scan in .jpg or .tif format. $2.00

"HOLD CARD TO LIGHT / Official Souvenir / POSTAL CARD / Machinery Building" from St. Louis Expo of 1904, mailed with light exposition cancel on 1-cent Livingston commemorative stamp, minor corner & edge wear, lightly toned back, cancel ink on front. Windows on building, the sun & some lights strung between poles light up. $35.00 (hem-e)

"HOLD CARD TO LIGHT / Official Souvenir / POSTAL CARD / Machinery Building" from St. Louis Expo of 1904, 1-cent Livingston commemorative stamp accompanied by "This is the mail for which you sent postage" auxiliary marking, minor corner & edge wear, lightly toned back, cancel ink on front. Windows on building, the sun & some lights strung between poles light up. The initial cancel where the stamp should have been is probably a Saint Louis duplex 1 handstamp-- probably, because the stamp is applied over some of it. The there is a NOV 15 1904 Saint Louis duplex 2 neatly which neatly ties the stamp. Then there is an Olathe Kans. NOV 16 receiving mark that just ties the stamp. In violet "This is the mail for / which you sent postage B" with all but 2 letters clear. Then in the lower left is a violet 2-ring circular "City Distribution Division // NOV / 13 / 1904 // St. Louis, Mo. (P.D.)" The name of the recipient is written twice in different inks--for which there are multiple possible explanations. $35.00 (he-u(p))

SOLE WORD'S FAIR STATIONER." post card with very late usage (at 6-cent rate) with much of the top & bottom borders thoughtfully trimmed by a certifiable imbecile. The bluish background at the top & bottom is included with the scan to highlight the faults. As is. $5.00 hme
