There was a Plattsburgh in Missouri? Who knew? Thank you, MeadowviewCollector!

http://www.strategic-air-command.co...urgh_AFB.htm 'my' Plattsburgh

From either one, Matson would be pleased to help you vacation in Hawaii: A Steamer Every Wednesday

I love old photo collections like these because they let me see what someone else saw; it is not just how Hawaii (in this instance) looked back then, but how, say, my great-grandparents would have seen it.

I've run across a lot of individual (and series of) PPCs published by railways and, later, airlines; this is my first SPF published by a steamship company.

The full booklet is at https://www.flickr.com/photos/ikeyp...50795367025/

Cheers,

Today I found a few more of these souvenir foldout post cards. Most were addressed but at least one was unused.

I'll get around to scanning and posting them

The Chicago one is actually smaller than the others though my scan makes it appear the same size as the others

These last two scans are the front and back of the same folder.

Congratulations, MeadowviewCollector!

Both stampfan9 & I have commented on how few GPU (Genuinely Postally Used) SPFs we've come across; you've outdone us both!

In addition, you've got a nice variety of 'earlies', which are also less common than the later BIG LETTER whites & linens.

Cheers,

/s/ ikeyPikey

Thanks iKey.

I thought the Air Mail Saves Times cancel on the Denver one was neat.

Super pictures and cards, I have not collected them in a while but just looking at them makes me want to start again. I really like the postally used but typically do not find them.

And it is!

Once you restrict yourself - to SPFs, or to Peru-to-Pittsburgh air covers, or whatever - things that are otherwise 'common' become harder to find and, by extension, more fun to find.

SPF of New York City, c1886-1895.

Took a labor of love to date this one, but:

- the Statue of Liberty opened in 1886;

- the New York Herald (newspaper) moved (to a new Stanford White building) in 1895;

- I was not able to do anything with the JON J NAGLES DINING SALOON sign on one of the buildings.

I am falling down an SPF rabbit hole. Within living memory, I groaned every time an auction lot showed-up with these postable-but-not-a-postcard creations; but I actually went out of my way to pay cash money to own this one:

https://www.flickr.com/photos/ikeyp...51605464491/

Q/ Can anyone tell me about the printing methodologies used in the production of these images? (See the Lady's Hand, and Cleopatra's Needle, below). To my untrained eye, there were 3 passes: black ink (engraved), light brown (some kind of simple, maybe, lithograph), and dark brown (half-tone screen) ... but I would appreciate any clarifications & corrections.

Cheers,

/s/ ikeyPikey

The 1893 World's Columbian Exhibition in Chicago IL USA ... courtesy of J & T Adikes





My guess is that this SPF is what is technically known as an 'advertising specialty' item; that is, something otherwise available for sale, to which has been added the name (etc) of the advertiser, in this case J & T Adikes.

I do not think that they commissioned the work, or that the copies imprinted in this fashion were distributed or available at the fair.

Instead, they would have given it directly to their customers; as it would have fit nicely in a #10 envelope, perhaps customers received one with their monthly statement.

J & T Adikes googled especially well:

http://fultonhistory.com/Newspapers...-%200137.pdf ... a lawsuit against the Long Island Rail Road, which had the temerity to want to move its siding, as reported in a 1914 issue of the Daily Long Island Farmer ... (see the 'lead', far below)

http://www.arrts-arrchives.com/JAMA...REIGHT2.html ... this labor-of-love LIRR history site includes an 1873 property map of that part of Jamaica - the J&T Adikes property is near the 'O' in 'DIVISION' street - as well as 3x pictures of the J & T Adikes building, one a little sadder than the other ...

http://query.nytimes.com/mem/archiv...9C946496D6CF ... a 1915 corporate contribution of U$D 10 towards feeding the starving children of Albania ...

https://www.law.cornell.edu/supreme...text/398/144 ... and, lastly, a 'serser' (search serendipity) item: "... Miss Adickes had been refused service by Kress because she was a 'Caucasian in the company of Negroes.'"

(This SPF - just like the NYC views, above - is in black, darker brown, and lighter brown. In this case, I suspect some sort of lithography for both browns. Again, I would appreciate clarifications & corrections & better guesses.)

I think that the slogan 'stamped' on the face of this SPF reads "MAILED FROM THE TOP OF THE WORLD // C P R R", with the latter bit standing-in for the Canadian Pacific Rail Road.

However, Canadian markings are not my forte, so corrections & amplifications are invited.

Cheers,

/s/ ikeyPikey

Further to the SPF "compliments of J & T Adikes" (above) I was, by luck-of-the-bay (and a few bucks), able to acquire a trade card:
