Undivided Back, handmade postcard, unused. 1901 – 1907.
Price: $15.00 Size: About 5 x 3″
U. S. postal changes tell us the time estimate for this very charming hand-drawn card: December 1901 the words “Post Card” were allowed (to replace “Private Mailing Card”) and then it was March 1907 when the law allowed for the Divided Back. So, we have a decent time-frame for when the card was made. And, Hughie (if he was the artist) was really very good. Look at those smooth lines, the use of the thicker ink stroke and thinner, the flow and movement, and just the overall uplifting feel, like a message of hope!
