"TETRAZZINI SINGING at LOTTA'S FOUNTAIN TO 100,000 PEOPLE ASSEMBLED IN THE STREETS / OF SAN FRANCISCO ON CHRISTMAS EVE, 1910. / COPYRIGHT 1910 BY PACIFIC PHOTO AND ART CO. S. F. PUBLISHED EXCLUSIVELY BY CARDINELL VINCENT CO. SAN FRANCISCO" the Chronicle Building bedecked with flags in the background, the world-famous operatic singer simultaneously presenting that city with a gift & a pointed snub to Oscar Hammerstein (who wanted her singing in New York City). From the looks of it, 100,000 was a gross undercount. May people remembered that day. Written on the back: 'John Blumenstiel and I are in this crowd.'

"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 want 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)

"WRIGHT BIPLANE 'CHYENNE' MUSKOGEE OKLA" Azo (triangles both ways) real photo postcard showing aviator Leonard Bonney about to transport Miss Olive Adair aloft at the 1911 Muskogee Fair, light album toning on back, good edges. The hobble-skirted Miss Adair became the first journalist to fly in Oklahoma; she was society reporter for the Muskogee Daily Phoenix. After the flight she broke a champagne bottle on the pilot's seat to christen the aeroplane 'Miss Cheyenne' (misspelled in the caption as reported here) in honor of the biplane owner's original state. We know the woman pictured was not Kathryn Hull (who was the first and only other woman Bonney took airborne that day), because she had nothing to do with the naming of the biplane. Super rare. $82.50 o(m)n
"YOU AND YOUR OLD NEWSPAPER; WHY DON'T / YOU PAY SOME ATTENTION TO ME ONCE IN AWHILE" scolds a woman with 7 children near her, unused Tichnor chrome postcard, a few tiny spots on the back from the printing process, good edges. $1.50 cn
