Don't Crawfish- 1900s Antique Postcard- Someone Behind You With a Shingle- Weird Postcard- Edwardian Motto- Strange Old Card- Paper Ephemera


(5 1/2 x 3 1/2 In) This is an original antique postcard from the 1900s. It shows an unusual Edwardian saying, "DON'T crawfish -- there may be someone behind you with a shingle." The quote is surrounded by an even more strange border of Jesters, fighting cats under a crescent moon, a grump old lady, a lobster and tin can tied to the tail of a dog biting the cuff of a pant leg, a young maid kissing an old man, a lemon, pinstriped legs with fancy socks showing, a man being sucker punched, a stern looking man in front of a church window, a burglar dropping into the mouth of a sleeping man, a woman being kicked in the ribs, and finally a man who is standing on a pile of other men in order to reach a shining star. So weird.

"Hello Lee:- How is the weather suiting your health? Is it hot enough for you? Are you going to stay at home this summer or are you out for a job with a threshing machine? I guess that I will go with the same machine I did last year. When are you going to write. J.R.", reads the typewritten message on the back.

The postcard is in VERY GOOD condition, wear at the edges, blunted corner tips, heavy postmark.
