seldom-seen political postcard from the 1908 Presidential Campaign features two nicely
done drawings of the two 'Bills' running that year: Bill Taft and Bill Bryan.
|PA206-This is an
extremely scarce novelty card referring to William Jennings Bryan who ran against Taft in
the 1908 Presidential campaign. The card is die-cut so that the
'Billibryanikin" doll pops away from the easel-style background. Un, some light
discoloration of background esp. at bottom but nothing that lessens the image itself;
Roosevelt in an Uncle Sam outfit is 'arbiter of the peace' in the Russo-Japanese War but
note that he is also a puppeteer. Artist signed by Nemo in lower left corner.
An early French issue. UN, EX
early (1900) and very rare Presidential Campaign postcard issue features William McKinley

Strauss of New York. It has the Private Mailing Card back. Un, some very
wear on left side; really hairline crease visible on back, top margin to PMC

There are two variations of this card that I know of: in one he wears a brown tie
and in the other he wears a blue tie (claimed to be scarcer issue). The card was
published in France, Un, light toning of paper due to age on back of card; overall VG++
scholarly Woodrow Wilson ran for re-election in 1916 on the slogan, "He kept us out
of war." Events forced him to ask Congress for a declaration of war against
Germany just 5 months into his second term. This sophisticated cartoon shows
Wilson driving an American army tank with a flag waving behind. Un, EX
men sitting in the old tavern drinking beer are not identified but they are excellent
likenesses of William Jennings Bryan and Woodrow Wilson. Wilson was President when the
18th Amendment was passed by Congress. Bryan was a noted prohibitionist. The
title at bottom is "Grape Juice 200 Years Ago." The artwork is by
Mounsback and card is dated 1915. Un, one light crease near lower right corner; overall VG
bird-like Uncle Sam peers up at a frowning Teddy Roosevelt. This excellent
caricature is signed in the lower left section of card. Early French issue with
undivided back. Very scarce. Un, EX+
|PL141-This is a
very crisp real photo postcard showing Governor Hughes of New York at Lowville, NY.
The photographer's name appears in negative as Shepard. The card is canceled in Oct.
1907 so I am wondering if this was part of his campaign to gain the GOP nomination for
President (he didn't get it). PU 1907, EX
assume from the dates given under the image of Pres. Franklin D. Roosevelt and the overall
somber color of the printing that this card was issued as an 'in memoriam' card.
Published by the Collotype Co. of Elizabeth NJ and NY, this is a very uncommon card. Un,
some yellowing to paper on back due to age; minimal corner wear; overall VG++
vintage real photo postcard captures a moment in President Taft's visit to Watertown,
Wisconsin on Sept. 17, 1909. You can pick out Taft quite readily on the photo (scan
is not quite as clear). The photo is good enough that you can make out the faces of some
of the people in forefront who have turned toward the photograher. Photo was by A.R.
Meyers. Un, early AZO stamp box, EX
Roosevelt collectors might want to look closely at this interesting card which pictures
the President with other world luminaries (Tsar, Kaiser, etc.) at a banquet at the
"Conference de la Paix a La Haye - 1907." Note the woman with olive branch
in hand behind them who is surely the "chimere!" referred to at the bottom of
the card. PU 1907 (strike not complete), some cancel ink on front left side; overall
early and terrific looking political postcard is featured in Dorothy and George Miller's
"Picture Postcards in the U.S., 1893-1918" (the bible of postcard
collectors). They mention that Julian Ralph, a Hearst writer, did an article on postcards
in Europe in 1902 and used this particular card to drive home his enthusiasm for the hobby
to the American public. It is a very attractive card: The American Flag fills
the background; a real photo of Roosevelt is surrounded by a 'unique' embossed border.
Un, early undivided back, very slight edge wear; overall EX
portrait of Teddy Roosevelt is flanked by an image of the Czar and the Mikado and
surrounded by some ornate graphics. This card was issued to commemorate the treaty

photo postcard of President Theodore Roosevelt with his sons is a nifty portrait
copyrighted by Pach Brothers of New York, 1907. Card was issued by Rotograph. Un, EX
photo postcard of Stalin, Truman and Churchill was taken at Potsdam, July 17, 1945.
It's a very clear image, and a nice capture of a historical moment even if Churchill does
have his eyes closed! Stalin arrived by train because he was afraid to fly (only
flew once). Published in Amsterdam. Un, EX
caricature of Stalin is from the same set as the one
which shows Hitler and Churchill (and no doubt, others for a total of
perhaps 6). Un, some darkening of board due to age;
from an attractive set "Aux Allies" published in Paris. Each card
represents a different nation as symbolized in the woman-butterfly's wings. This
card is for Montenegro. Un, EX
