Bumpity-bump!

Wikipedia gives a 2010 population of 708 for Windfall IN.

Incidentally, I recently bought one of the six cards that began this thread: the two kids with the empty plates ... that are empty, one supposes, because nobody's slaughtered & cooked that bird.

Cheers,

http://www.metropostcard.com/publishersw.html ... Our first card is copyright 1911 by John Winsch:


Quote:
John O. Winsch 1910-1915 Stapleton, NY

A very important publisher of artist signed and holiday cards. They are especially known for their Halloween and Thanksgiving cards. Winsch used European artists to work directly with his German printer. (most likely Obpacher Bros.). Samuel L. Schmucker was one of their better known artists who created the Winsch Girl. Fred Kolb, Katherine Eilliot, Charles Levi, and James Frexas also created cards for them. They produced almost 4,000 different designs, many of which were issued in sets. Though most of their cards were manufactured in Germany, some were printed in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Many of their cards do not carry the firms name, though they all have a similar graphic design on their backs. Other publishers however took advantage of this and began using a similar back hoping to mislead customers and capitalize on the higher prices that Winsch cards fetched. Winsch was the co-manager of the Art Lithographic Publishing Company in 1915, but his exact tenure is uncertain. He seems to have resumed publishing postcards under his own name sometime after the end of World War One until about 1925.


It is very difficult to describe just how stunningly gorgeous this card really is, what with the gradations of largely monochrome grays in the feathers, the elaborate embossing, etc.

I'm not even going to try to apologize for posting this large an image:



Q/ There are Thanksgiving jingles? Who knew?



Q/ Is the message here that the kids will go hungry until somebody kills that bird?



Not sure I get the pun, as it seems that Uncle Sam is about to relieve The Ruler Of The Day of that scepter ...

There are Thanksgiving songs. "Jingle Bells" was originally intended to be a Thanksgiving song, but alas Christmas snagged it away.

I need to really scan some of my recent hauls - I have a bunch to post here in the near future.

The first two are from 1908 and the last three from 1910.

Just thought I'd add a few. A couple are repeats and have already been shown.
Comments welcome.

Edit to add:
Both the second and last card have flags that look like the 45 star flag and to my count there are 45 stars.
Would this mean these cards would have been printed some time between 1896-1908 when the US flew the 45 star flag?

Cheers, Bill

Those are pomegranates, not apples ... not too often you see pomegranates on a postcard, unless its for Rosh HaShanah.

Cheers,
