"6731-- / Chemical / Fire Engine / Horses. / Wheeling / W. Va. // SOUVENIR POST CARD CO., NEW YORK" undivided back postcard mailed 1905, 2 small corner creases neither into the image, stamp corner folded in before cancel. Seldom offered; seldom seen.

"921. PARIS-Moderne - Les femmes cochers / Hé cochère ! Êtes vous libre? C. M." man hails a female driving a fiacre, asking if she is free; carte postale with subtle colors mailed 1909 from Paris to Portland Maine, stamp removed with slight thinning to the back paper, light toning both sides. The question in the caption is the beginning of at least one French joke: when the cabby replies that she is, the rejoinder is 'Alors, vive la liberté!' or 'Then long live liberty!' with so many double-entrendres that we dare not list them here. $20.00 tf(p)h
"A 4-11 FIRE ALARM, CHICAGO." signed art (looks like A. Fleury) depicting a horse-drawn fire engine racing towards a nearby blaze, postcard from V. O. Hammon (their number 518 on back), used there 1908, extensive toning on back, sender's message in the sky (permitted then) disparages the city. We doubt this postcard got much use or further printing; it was just too hard to read messages against the almost-all-dark colors. $10.00 fhi
"A C Wilson. returned cases to a customer at Peebles Ohio." showing a side view of the horse-drawn wagon with him standing beside it; Cyko real photo postcard. Albert 'Bert' C. Wilson was about 30 years old when this obviously unique photo was taken; his descendants are still prominent in that community. The best Adams County postcard we have ever seen. 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 o(p)hg

Rare subject, but we do believe that a photo like it is in the United States Library of Congress. Sold but front 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 thg*
"A. J. Riedman--Livery--Brookville, Ind." showing a carriage available for hire there; unused sepia-tone real photo post card with divided back, light oxidation consistent with age, good edges. A livery business would generally care, feed & stable horses of others & rent out their own (for funerals, for example). As Brookville was & still is a fairly small town, we speculate that Riedman bought out the livery of Dr. Hanna there when the veterinarian obtained his degree, and then circulated some postcards associating this new name with that business. Seldom offered. Sold but its front is still available for scholarly study & research as an enlarged & enhanced (publication-quality) 300-dpi scan in .jpg format. $3.75 i(b)h
"Alliance, O. / School Wagon" approximately 6-1/2"x4-3/4" sepia-tone real photo of a high school girls class posed with their teacher on a horse-drawn school wagon, uncaptioned so we used all the writing on the back. School wagons were used for field trips, and were not the same as school buses. Uncommon subject matter. $20.00 o(a)ge LOST BUT NOW FOUND!

Wagon at left reads: G. Saxby / FRUITERER & GREENGROCER / 249 GRAY'S INN ROAD. / CONTRACTOR FOR REMOVALE." $4.25 e(h)g(s)h
"Anvers Chevaux de Corporations." showing horses
pulling a heavy load of barrels on cobbled pavement near the docks (masts
showing in the background); unused carte postale from Nels, very little
corner wear. We have seen a version of this postcard where the location was
not specified in the caption, so check your album!

JOHNSON / CHIMNEY SWEEP / 971 BROADWAY / PRONE OAK 2176" in Oakland California with attention-getting wagon & 2 workers in costume before the business (name & address on awning) established by Jewish immigrant (from Czernowitz Bukovina ) Adolph Rittigstein. Sepia-tone Azo (triangles up) real photo divided back post card with wonderful depth-of-field & lighting that brings out the details. The Rittigstein (& Son) business prospered by supplying paints, oils, hardware, locksmithing & chimney sweeping services from 1889 - 1910. Belongs in a museum. Sold but front side still available for scholarly study & research as an enlarged 300-dpi scan (publication quality) in .jpg format for $3.75. c(o)pjhg

First names of three pictured written in by sender include George & Lillian. Possibly unique. $20.00 ih

This business is mentioned as early as 1874 in the New York Times. We found references to it in 1887 & 1892, so it was quite successful.

"BUFFALO BILL'S DEADWOOD STAGE COACH" pulled by 6 mules, color on an undivided back postcard, light album marks at corners, mild wear at one corner, exceptionally fresh for its age but the colors are a bit off-register. Once deemed the most famous vehicle extant, 6 Wells Fargo men died defending its strongbox. $15.00 chu NEW / NEU / NOUVEAU

Unused sepia-tone real photo Cyko postcard with good contrast & focus, trivial corner wear.

"Carlinville Ill. ... 9-12-09 ...This is a picture of us driving across country from one of other farms." uncaptioned (so we quote from the back message) sepia-tone real photo postcard mailed SEP 13 1909 at Carlinville, small upper corner crease, tiny tear at top center edge, bottom corner with 2 small creases, oxidation consistent with age. The sturdiness of these horse-drawn buggies is evident as the men perch or lean on the tops. 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 i(c)h
"Carrera Chile Quito [Ecuador printed at end]" with horse-drawn traffic & pedestrians, unused tarjeta postal with divided back, small red check mark inked on back, light toning both sides, minor edge wear, just a little longer than most regular-size postcards. $1.50 eh

"CHEMICAL ENGINE No 2 / BELLAIRE FIRE DEP'T. / 182345 Bellaire, Ohio" with 2 horses pulling specialized equipment manufactured by Merryweather & Sons 1902 - 1914. The top fitting behind the drivers carried a lead bottle of sulfuric acid (punctured by turning a handle at the rear), which reacted with a water/bicarbonate solution in the lower rear copper cylinder causing carbon dioxide gas to expel the liquid at high pressure. For communities that could afford such specialization, fire fighters could provide near-instant response on arrival at a fire scene, whilst other engines were delayed getting their connections to a hydrant. There is a long horizontal crease which will not occupy your attention for long; the back is toned; the corners are rounded; the cancel is indistinct, but the message is dated January 22 1910. We are told the man holding the reins is Jacob Roy McMillen. Another example of this postcard is in the book 'Images of America / Bellaire' by Holly Bruno and Andrew Ehritz. Another is in a museum. Under high magnification a curved BELLAIRE OHIO is over the right front wagon wheel. Definitely an uncommon postcard. $25.00 fho(b)
"Chew Flat Iron / Plug Tobacco " caption from blanket on horses pulling a Summit Stores (Grocery) parade wagon, reproduced by a collector to advertise his interest in Pennsylvania postcards, corrected phone number on back but otherwise unused, low-contrast / grayish. $2.00
"Chicago / or Bust" uncaptioned (so we use all of the sign on the horse-drawn wagon) sepia-tone real photo clearly cancelled at French N. Mex. FEB 5 1913 (DPO, La Posta rarity 2). Addressee may well be in the picture, message states 'Here is the way you all looked when you left N. Mex.' Probably one-of-a-kind: no caption, no photographer attribution, no publisher mentioned. Sold but front side still available for scholarly study & research as an enlarged 300-dpi scan (publication quality) in .jpg format for $3.75. n(f)h-n
"Cincinnati / Fire Department / Headquarters. / Home of Fire Company No. 3,..." with three horse-drawn wagons, monochromatic dark blue, mailed there 1907, corner crease, mild edge & corner faults.

Clear AU 10 1933 Columbus Ohio machine cancel ties damaged-in-opening 3¢ Washington stamp franking #10 envelope conveying 4 full-page letter on 2 illustrated letterheads from M. Mae Palmer to her husband A. T. Palmer (proprietors of the Maeland Stock Farm in Dublin Ohio) as he travelled with the Hagenbeck-Wallace Circus, next-day arrival marked by light violet double-ring Martinsburg WV hand cancel on back. These people trained and boarded horses & harnesses suitable for heavy circus work. Aside from personal remarks, the lady recounts in detail a fascinating & amusing bargaining session where a prospective customer tried to buy or rent "the tallyho" and harness for four. Their business did not last long, evidently succumbing during the Depression. We found no mention of their business at all when we searched the Internet. $30.00 o-ch
"Come to the / Galt Horse Show / June 6th, 7th and 8th, 1907 // „TILBURY” post card numbered B. K. W. 1. (Brueder Kohn Wien 1 in Vienna Austria) 865-2 on back, artist-signed (hard to read) at lower right mailed MY 31 07, published by W. G. Mac Farlane Toronto-Buffalo-Vienna, minor corner wear. The Tilbury is a light open 2-wheeled carriage developed in the early 1800's in London England by the firm with the same name; falls from such vehicles (bumps at speed) occurred & were dangerous.

Annotated on the back in pencil by a local historian who we know to be reliable: "Dayton, Ohio - N. W. Corner of Ludlow and Stout St. / Ticket Office 32 Ludlow at Arcade Entrance". Most likely one-of-a-kind: no publisher or photographer credit, & no caption as a commercial product would have. Belongs in a museum. $100.00 o(d)r(d)h

We daresay that most collectors of the bottles have never seen the likes of this image, because it is rare! Sold but still available for scholarly study & research as an enlarged (almost 2x original postcard area) 100-dpi scan in .jpg or .tif format. $1.50 m(b)hm
Uncaptioned real photo postcard showing a horse-drawn flower-decorated cart full of dressed-up children, obviously for a parade, bearing the advertising sign 'HOFFSTODT'S / CITY GREEN HOUSES', sepia-tone from Mossholder's Studio in Shelby Ohio, light brownish paper. The Mansfield Telephone Company serviced Shelby; its 1902 directory for Shelby lists W. A. Hoffstodt's residence at 22 Sharon. Push-pin damage has taken two small chunks out of the bottom edge (neither anywhere near the image) & just nicked the top edge twice; framing would easily obscure that difficulty. The best Richland County Ohio postcard we have ever seen. 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 ofhpg

Signage as follows (left-to-right): USE MICA AXLE GREASE, KEROSINE AND PERFECTION OIL, STANDARD OIL CO. The seemingly strange alternate spelling was used for industrial purposes because Kerosene had become a genericized trade mark. Kerosine/Kerosene was use in lamps of the day; Perfection Oil was used in smokeless oil heaters. Sold but front side still available for scholarly study & research as an enlarged 300-dpi scan (publication quality) in .jpg format for $3.75. oh
Uncaptioned sepia-tone Azo (triangles up) real photo postcard showing the horse-drawn Conestoga wagon (guarded by US troopers) recreating the shipment of powder to Perry in Erie Pennsylvania from Wilmington Delaware, part of the Perry Victory centennial 6/2/13 to 7/7/13. Good focus & contrast helps for exact location -- Jordan's Drug Store signage & Keystone in 1913 Pennsylvania license plate (auto at left) means this is Bedford Pennsylvania, where the store had mentions in the Bedford Gazette from 1908 to 1925. [Checking the map, the journey would have gone west along what is now I-76 through Bedford, before heading north on what is now I-79.] Excellent condition overall. SALE IN PROGRESS p(b)h
Uncaptioned sepia-tone real photo post card showing a uniformed fireman
ready to drive a coach-like vehicle pulled by 2 horses, intricate fittings
for multiple hoses at the side of the vehicle--to allow several shorter
hoses to be hooked up to a feeder hose coming from a distant hydrant.
Contrast is excellent & depth of field is too. We have never seen the likes
of this vehicle before. Back is toned with 'Fire Department' written twice
on it; tiny bottom corner crease; all corners with minor rounding; oxidation
consistent with circa 1908 age.
Uncaptioned sepia-tone real photo postcard showing a Wells Fargo horse-drawn wagon with a load of Crescent Macaroni & Cracker Company barrels in front of a business showing '108. / Barr & ...' in its partially obscured signage, large Ringling Brothers circus advertising their stop in Davenport Iowa on Monday July 18 1910 (their circuit comprised entirely of one-day shows then), mailed JUL 21 1910 to Miss Berta Miller in Dayton Ohio by a man named Oscar who is standing in front of the wagon.

"U.S. MAIL / R.F.D. / No. 2 / WESTVILL[E] / N. ..." // RURAL FREE DELIVERY" unused sepia-tone postcard with unevenly toned divided back, faint upper corner crease, minor corner wear. How do we know it is Westville New Jersey? The Westville New York post office was discontinued in 1907 (pre-divided back); there is no Westville New Hampshire; there is no Westville North Carolina; & there is no Westville North Dakota. That is how we know where this surprising scene actually was, even though they tried to obscure the last letters of the town & state abbreviation to keep us guessing. What fun! $9.00 n(w)phl%
"Valuable loads" showing 2 horse-drawn wagons with goods & 3 ladies perched upon them, unused Azo real photo (triangles up). Humor provides interesting insight into how women were regarded at that time. $20.00

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. Sold but front side still available for scholarly study & research as an enlarged 300-dpi scan (publication quality) in .jpg format for $3.75. m(a)mhag
"W. D. Ackerson Company Market / W. Rogers Bakery / J. F.

Possibly one-of-a-kind: no caption, no photographer credit, no publisher information. SALE IN PROGRESS n(n)gggh
