Antique Postcards

I recently went to an antique book & paper fair held in Denver and found some great antique postcards with flowers. As I also collect stamps, I love that several of these have stamps and postal cancellations that are almost a century old.

The 'out with the old, in with the new' theme of this first postcard is what attracted my attention as the little gnome seems to be trying to deadhead the 1906 flower to make room for the 1907 flower.

This postcard was sent to a local address- 3029 Vine St. in June of 1917. I thought it might be neat to see if this house still existed so I took a short excursion today and found it.

  1. I love the Edwardian cards with the colour printing and narratives. So cute and such beautiful illustrations. Great the find a house at the address too. Same one do you think?
