Good Old Days Army Postmark

MWM GC426


MWM GC426


As exploration of the collection grows, and purchases are growing as well, It has become time to learn more about the science of postcards

While there are good references to check for many postcards, little history is online. PostcardHistory[dot]net has a tremendous amount of information. Yet, I still found mostly only sale sites when I searched for MWM Gc426 color lithograph. 
The process of printing cards back a century ago, I find fascinating and hope to learn more with each antique from the collection.  Some of these will someday also be for sale, and I had wished to provide more details when the shop opens up.  
The humor, too, is often challenging to get? But the juicy details are often in the address side. This note back to mom and pop thru the Army examiner APO and somehow didn't require a stamp.  But both front and back are lovely. The artwork so detailed. Hard to think that someone created it and it traveled the world or the country for 1¢ or 2¢.  And it sent such greetings from a loved one, or could bring such relief.  
Send a postcard today.
Lift someone's spirits. 
I got these this week to say goodbye to my amazing co-workers and move onto my next position. 
You're the Best!
