So much for rarely seeing them GPU (Genuinely Postally Used).

Way to counter-balance an issue, stampfan9!

My own experience? Coupla dozen souvenir photo folders, maybe 2x GPU.

Cheers,

ikeyPikey, that is the total I have that are used. I am always on the look out for used souvenir folders, but they are hard to find.

This one is a little worn.

The sender paid the full freight because of a long note written on the inside the cover.

Cheers,

Sadly, this oldie is missing its back flap/cover.

In fact, the cover is the best thing about this booklet.

The colorations of the individual photos are garish to the point of grotesque.

Q/ What were Cardinell-Vincent thinking?

Q/ Should I be happy that, the more awful the production values, the further back towards 1917 the card can be placed?

Q/ Or, should I be melancholy that my father & mother dragged me thru the Louvre (et al) at a tender age, and gave me the taste to be offended?

"Have uglies, will scan."

===

I use a lot of 3-letter codes in my collecting. RPP you know. LNN you can guess. BUW stands for Butt Ugly Whites, which is where most of the 1917-1930 US postcards end-up.

Cheers,

/s/ ikeyPikey

what I like about the non-US souvenir folders is the lack of the color orange on the address side.

I think that the Luton & California SPFs were simply printed before Teich et al discovered that orange was the buy-signal color.

Check-out the backside on this cutie <== re-purposing the phrase

I love the aura of Progress. I miss the naive optimism of the Exhibitions, Expositions, and World's Fairs.

And I miss these big, gleaming beauties rumbling into town; actually, I miss and missed them, as I am too young to remember much more than the echo of the Golden Age of Rail Travel, courtesy of b/w movies.

Hollywood, what hath thou wrought?

I imagine that the half-cent uprate from 1.5 to 2c is related to the very USPOD-looking "THIS IS THE ITEM FOR // WHICH YOU SENT POSTAGE", but what are we to understand by "SENT"? That the item was held at the city of origin? That the half-cent was paid in cash to a letter carrier, who passed it to a clerk at the delivering post office?

I have, like, so got to check if there is a written message inside.

Q/ And, BTW, has the 4th car of the big, gleaming beauty derailed?

Cheers,

/s/ ikeyPikey

I am certain that there is a tasteful explanation for this card ... "Senioritas?" seriously? ... and I can't wait to hear it.

And that makes the 4th & last of my GPU (Genuinely Postally Used) souvenir photo foldouts.

Cheers,

ikeyPikey

Not scenic views, but ethnic cuisine on a Musselman's advertising foldout:








Gotta love a salad dressing which contains a half pound of fried bacon.

My mother's father served at Camp Upton.

I wonder how he would feel that there is not one telegrapher in this set, which can be seen in its entirety at https://www.flickr.com/photos/ikeyp...48130180914/

Decades later, Camp Upton was folded into Brookhaven National Labs.

Woohooo I can add one to this thread I found today!

It's related to Plattsburg, Missouri postmarked 1907.
