T.K. Barker & Company

Stamp Collecting PostcardAn advertising postcard from a San Francisco company that sold postage stamps to collectors. This postcard was mailed in 1941, and while I’ve heard that the company advertised in the Boy Scouts of America publication, Boys Life, in the 1930s, they don’t seem to have been in business after the ’40s.

The Davis Home

RPPCThis real photo postcard was mailed from Oakland, Iowa to Silver City in 1913. Obviously written at a later date (in ball point pen), the two women are identified on the back as Doll and Ann Davis “on South Park Street”.
