This modern greeting card shows us a little boy and his rooster. He is sitting on a stool smoking a cigarette, while next to him a chicken almost as big as he is stands. The cock bird appears to be a Poulet de Bresse, and is wearing a leg band. The boy is named Henry Groulx. It is a reproduction of a vintage photograph by the Parisian Studio, Paris, France, circa 1920.

This image's original is owned by Library and Archives Canada, and is used by permission, reproduction reference number C-036255, and under the MIKAN ID number 3194087. We purchased the rights to use this image from L&A, and are (as far as we can tell) the only seller of this image who has done so.

You can choose to have this card in black and white or sepia tone, with a glossy or matte surface, and with or without a matching 1.5" envelope sticker/seal. Simply make your selections from the pulldown menus when you make your purchase.

Our cards are all 5" x 7" inches, (unfolded they measure 7" x 10") printed on heavy weight, 11ml cover cardstock, blank inside. Each card comes with an envelope. The image will have a colored border applied, with the image centered in the card and a white border around it, as shown in the samples picture above. Please note that vintage image sizes vary, and are not optimized for modern frames (in case you are buying the card with an eye to framing it.)

We make our cards from vintage images from our personal collection (we've been collecting ephemera for over 40 years.) We scan the originals, and then clean and repair the damage that time has done to the original using Photoshop. We then print them using a high resolution printer at 600 DPI. The resulting card is deeply saturated, and guaranteed to please.

Note any watermark showing is on the scan only, not the item itself. All images and design elements are protected by copyright. Copyright is not transferable with the sale of this product. The buyer is not entitled to reproduction rights.
