Making Tireless Efforts- 1900s Antique Postcard- Weird Bicycle- Edwardian Humor- Art Comic- P. Sander- Used


(3 1/2 x 5 1/2 In) This is an original antique P. Sander postcard from the 1900s. It shows a dapper Edwardian fellow speeding by a pair of spectators on a bicycle with rubber-soled shoes instead of tires, "Making Tireless Efforts". "Here is Emil again- Emil never get out of shoes- he got plenty with him.", reads the note penciled on the front.

"Adair, Iowa- Hello Annie- well how are you getting along- I am getting along fine- I got your postal- I think it was a dandy but I don't think Emil is quite that bad- did you go to the Thanksgiving ball- did you have a good time- I would like to have been there and dance with Emil- This is all for this time- From Your Friend Alma                  P.S. Tell Tillie to hurry up and write me- I got another one to send her- I am waiting for her card- What did you have for Thanksgiving dinner- we had a fat goose for dinner- Write Soon, Good-Bye", reads the message penciled on the back. 

The postcard is used and is in VERY GOOD condition, wear at the edges, blunted corner tips, a few minor stains and creases.
