"CORN FESTIVAL OCT 5 ... SWANTON OHIO" with a large flag-bedecked steam tractor about to cross the railroad tracks, man on horseback probably the parade marshal; originally intended to be sent, the postcard was stamped but not written on, a clumsy attempt to remove the stamp effectively destroyed it, tiny pinhole in the upper left sky, approximately 1" paper bend from the center of the bottom edge.

"CRAWFORD" horse-drawn parade float in 2 segments connected by a sturdy bridge, probably done by a collegiate school of engineering (first part electrical engineers, second part civil engineers...); unused sepia-tone KRUXO-divider real photo, very light toning near the back edges. [See "Little Charles Ruby" below for an AIEE float done for Purdue in 1910.] This type of paper was used 1911 - 1922. At first we though this a product of the Crawford School of Engineering at Norwich University, but that school was not so named until the 1990's. $10.00 p
"Die Amerikaner kommen" (the Americans are coming) political cartoon by August Roeseler showing a parade--led by a limousine bearing Americans (with real money to spend) followed by a German farmer driving a tractor pulling bags full of almost-worthless German currency. The hyperinflation referred to in the art occurred in 1922-1923, when Americans (or anyone else with real money to spend) would be treated like royalty. But the Postkarte was resurrected into use during the depression that was raging there (and elsewhere) in 1932, when again anyone with real money to spend would have been most welcome. Postkarte mailed August 2 1932 from Münich to New York City. Message partially reads 'This is how we were welcomed into Germany'. Signs in the art include: 'We speak English', 'Welcome to Germany', 'Welcome to the Beergarden, etc. The top & bottom edges were scissors cut. 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 gppa(r)n

"ENTHUSIASTIC THOUSANDS OF NEW YORK'S CHINESE WELCOME DR. C. C. WU, / SPECIAL ENVOY OF THE NEW CHINA, CHINATOWN, NEW YORK" showing a May 1928 parade in progress for the envoy of the Chinese Nationalists, sent by Chiang Kai-shek; unused postcard given out at the Chin and Chin Lee Restaurants (Broadway & 44th, and Broadway & 49th, respectively). Heavy vertical crease is not too conspicuous by the luck of where it falls within the image, small tear in the right front margin, bottom corner crease not into the image. Sold but still available for scholarly study & research as a full-size & enhanced 72-dpi scan in .jpg format. $1.50 pn(n)ch
"Eucharistischer Kongress / Bitsch 26/27 Mai 1912" showing a parade of young girls with palm fronds & banners, Postkarte mailed from Breidenbach Lothringen with German 10-pfg stamp to New York City. The International Eucharistic Congress took place in September of that year, so there is not much information about this local Catholic event. Also spelled Bitche, the commune is now in the Moselle department of France. $20.00 prf(b)c
"FARMERS(sic) WIFE" uncaptioned (so we use all the horse-drawn parade float signage) Azo (triangles up) real photo postcard including a make-shift washing machine with wringer, good edges, slight curl to the paper, trivial light toning near the back edges. $10.00 pha

J. Arthur at APO 702 (American Expeditionary Force) to his sister Miss Florence Arthur in Springfield Ohio, A. E. P. PASSED AS CENSORED marking initialed on back, small bottom corner crease, top corner bend with minor wear. $5.00 ff(p)p
Flower-bedecked parade float of a three-masted ship without signage placed before a massive pipe organ; uncaptioned real photo postcard mailed at Millstone NJ (now a discontinued Post Office in Somerset County) on APR 16 AM 1906 (the day after Easter) to Mrs. Mattie Elliot in Morristown New Jersey; Newark NJ transit cancel 12:30PM that day; sender's first name written neatly top front. Parade floats for the Atlantic City Easter Parade (a huge regional event at the time) were often decorated with flowers, and we have seen such a 1906 parade float albeit different that participated in that event. The church, hall, or auditorium in which this organ was situated was undoubtedly known to both sender & recipient; but images of New Jersey organs typically emphasize the keyboard rather than the pipes, leaving us in the dark. The true location has to be near the cities mentioned here: participate in the parade, display by the organ, take then develop a photo, mail the next morning ... is all on a tight timeline. $15.00 mpn(a) NEW / UUSI / NOU
"Flower parade Helena. We had a great time here last week at the May Festival. This is the May Queen and myself in front." Uncaptioned real photo postcard (so we used message at the bottom front), mailed at Helena Arkansas May 21 1909 with a 2-cent stamp (overpaid), bottom corner crease, trivial corner wear.

"Gruss vom Kaiser-Jubiläums-Huldigungs-Festzug, Wien 1908" postcard with signed C. Benesch art, mailed 1908 with Austrian stamp to Abbazia (now in Italy), trivial wear at two corners. This parade celebrated the Kaiser's 60th year on the throne. $8.00 rap
"Gruss vom / Stabenfest Nördlingen" showing a girl's school marching with flags in front of the Hotel Krone; unused postcard, Chr. Strauss 2462, back paper browning evenly with age (circa 1910), good edges. Stabenfest is a local Bavarian celebration in May that dates back into the 15th century. All school children & their teachers march in a parade with staffs (Staben) decorated with flowers, ribbons & flags. For some reason it is an uncommon subject for postcards. $20.00 bfggp
"HABANA: PASEO DE CARNAVAL EN EL MALECON. / CARNIVAL AT MALECON PROMENADE. 106670" including a parade float with w large swan figures at the front; unused circa-1925 postcard made in the USA by publisher C.

"HAZLETON MACHINERY & SUPPLY CO." parade float drawn by 4 horses, unused sepia-tone postcard with undivided back. Their office and sales rooms were located on 242-246 West Broad street in Hazelton Pennsylvania. From various trade references, we know it operated at least from 1908 to 1933. Possibly one-of-a-kind: no caption (so we used the float banner), no photographer or publisher attribution. 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 p(h)ph

"Home Coming Shawnee, O. Sept. 5th 1910" in Ohio, a well-attended parade on Main Street with a few automobiles, horse-drawn wagons, flag bearer, etc. (passing beneath a WELCOME / SPENCER DRUG CO. banner); unused Azo (triangles up) real photo postcard with good contrast & depth-of-field, trivial corner rounding. This event in modern times is held on the Saturday before Labor Day to celebrate the town's history & people; but check your calendars because September 5 1910 was the first Monday in September that year -- therefore this was also their Labor Day parade. Rare! 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(s)pl

"INDUSTRIAL PARADE OF OCT 5 SWANTON OHIO" showing a group of girls named the 'Kings Heralds' (a religious reference to Jesus Christ) wearing crowns & carrying a publicity banner in their Corn Festival parade; sepia-tone postcard with writing on back dating to 1909. This group was organized by Mrs. Delilah Smith, a Woman's Christian Temperance Union member, who saw a need for wholesome recreation for young people -- such as hay rides at her farm one mile north of Swanton. Many organization members went on to religious or missionary work for the United Methodist Church. No one else can show you this. $25.00 o(s)grp

"JOHN MOHR - MAXWELL" showing his auto paused before Nellans' Grocery in the parade honoring visiting presidential candidate William Howard Taft in October 1908; unused sepia-tone Azo (triangles all up) real photo postcard with high contrast & good focus, inconsequential toning on back. Z. M. Nellams sold his grocery business to John J. Smith as reported in the 10/9/09 Topeka Merchants Journal on page 18. The J in the caption is reversed indicating to the experienced eye that the effort of writing backwards on the negative was not yet mastered--hence an early real photo for the publisher. For details on the parade a year earlier, see The Topeka Daily Capital of 10/3/08 page 1. Rare. $50.00 k(t)ppg(m)g(n)f NEW / UUSI / NOU

Other names for smilax are catbriar & sarsparilla. The float number in the parade was J3.

"LITTLE CHARLES RUBY / 31" the Purdue University AIEE homecoming parade float bearing an electrical motor, 2 gauges to measure its output & students from the Electrical Engineering Department; Charles Ruby being the instructor's name (mentioned in the 1910 Electrical Review and Western Electrician, Vol. 56 No. 2) who designed it & is probably on the float; unused sepia-tone Azo (triangles up) real photo postcard.

The Fair mentioned on back was first done in 1913 by ladies of the Presbyterian church, and included a carnival. By 1931 it became the Emperor Grape Festival, and it is now known as the Exeter Fall Festival. Obviously one-of-a-kind, it should be displayed in a museum or on the cityofexeter.com website.
