This fantastic Postcard of A Winter Scene with Rancher and Horse is vintage. It belonged my Great Grandmother. I have oodles of cards that I'm posting on etsy, so continue to check my shoppe often! They are all from the time period of 1908 and 1915. This one was written on and was posted in July of 1908.

Grandma kept everything, including this old newspaper clipping (not included in sale) about One Cent to ship postcards to most destinations via the postal service. Mail was the most inexpensive way to let your friends and family know you were well and pass on additional news like a birth in the family! Postcards were very popular communication during the early 1900's! And why not make it pretty, too?!.....Postcards came in a lovely variety of beauty! Just imagine how exciting it would be to receive such a pretty postcard in the mail now and then! (See full newspaper clipping by clicking on the photo of the clipping in this listing. Click on it again to enlarge!)

A horizontal card design of a man and his trusty horse on a cold, snowy winter day. The picture is set back into a lovely cloud of silver-grey. It is over a century old, and there is some brown speckles from age on the back. The corners are bumped slightly. The picture is unaffected. Great condition for it's age! (Click on any of my photos for a close-up).

Postal Use : Posted with a One Cent Stamp, Hull, July 20(?), 1908, 7PM,. The written inscription starts with a young child's penciling "Dear Cousin". It was written to my Great Grandfather, Johnnie in Boyden, Iowa.
