"S. E. Il Senatore Marconi" unused hand-tinted real photo post card from Fotocelere in Torino, printed in Italy, just a little toning at the back edges. The electrical engineer credited with inventing the radio, Marconi was made a Senator in the Senate of the Kingdom of Italy in 1914 -- a possible occasion for this postcard. But the back is printed 'C. Reg. U. S. A. May 8/23 - Prod. per N. A.' noting a later copyright in the US. 1923 was the year he was awarded the prestigious John Fritz Medal from the American Association of Engineering Societies --giving an alternative explanation for this postcard. If it is a 1914 postcard, then he shown at 40 years of age; if it is a 1923 postcard, then he is 49. Looks more like 49 to us, and the American award in that year could explain why they got a USA copyright. In any event, Marconi lived longer: in 1931 he set up Vatican City Radio for Pope Pius XI, for example. $12.50 rvei NEW / NEU / NOUVEAU
