This postcard struck my interest and I had to check out the details! The Northwestern Hide & Fur Company is a now a Historical site that you can visit. It is obviously not a running business now like it was around the year 1910 when this postcard was handed out as advertisement!

This postcard belonged my Great Grandfather. 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 to 1915.

Grandma kept everything, including this old newspaper clipping (not included) regarding One Cent shipping of postcards to domestic 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.

A horizontal design. Divided back for correspondence and address. A lovely This postcard is over 100 years old. It shows it in it's bumped corners. There are a few light scratch marks in the area of the bear's hips. It has some age spots on the back. This card was handed out as advertisement and was probably not a precious card when it was handed out as there were prettier postcards to mail to a loved one. Now, however, it's a rare commodity because most people tossed them at the time, rather than keeping them forever like my Grandma! (Again, please view the photos in the enlarged form in order to see every bit of them close up!)

Postal Use: Not posted. No writing on the card.

The card has a divided back for the communication and the address. There is a dotted area noting where a stamp would belong. The back has printed on it:
J.C. Jamieson Co., St. Paul, Minn. Printed in Germany
