Another Art Nouveau style postcard from The Elite Post Card Co. of Kansas City, MO. This one shows three tinted photo scenes of the Blue River, Canoeing, and “Camp.” The website Blueriver.org describes the river as “a wonderful little stream located on the south side of the Kansas City metro area” and goes on to give a fuller account of it’s location. (I do adore this description which for me gives the river a cognizant – and rightly so – quality.) There is just something so compelling, mysterious, poetic and sacred about a river.
Divided back, unused postcard. Publisher: The Elite Post Card Co., Kansas City, MO. Made in the U.S.A. Number/Series: 127 A-16656. Circa 1908 – 1914.
