LABOR DAY POST
CARDS & POSTCARDS
"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. Sold but front side still available for scholarly study & research
as an enlarged 300-dpi scan (publication quality) in .jpg format for $3.75.
"Main Street (Labour Day), / Winnipeg, Man., Canada" showing a throng of people near the Bank of Hamilton (at the right) dispersing after a parade, as seen from above; post card mailed 1913, one corner badly creased, other edge wear is minor, dark image. $7.50 m(w)lm

Uncaptioned sepia-tone real photo postcard showing part of the Labor Day parade down Main Street in Watertown Wisconsin.

Watertown's first celebration was in 1906, as recounted by the Watertown Historical Society. This scene was on Monday (of course) September 7th 1908, and the postcard was mailed at Watertown the next day to Miss Ottilie Zobel in Manistee Michigan. Very light toning on back mostly near the edges. Possibly one-of-a-kind: no printed caption, no photographer credit, no publisher information. $19.00 w(w)lpg(b)
