Since there has been a keen interest in postcards today from various States across the US, I thought this collection of 25,000 postcard proofs from Tichnor Bros. of Boston (courtesy of the Boston Public Library) may be a good reference:

Check this one out! The Tiadaghton Elm Tree~ I used to live down the road from this tree (it was cut down when I was very young so was a stump)and a fellow named Wylie Henry (a cousin of mine) used to be it's caretaker but Dutch Elm disease killed it sadly.

The Fair Play Men were illegal settlers who established their own system of self-rule from 1773 to 1785 in the West Branch Susquehanna River valley of Pennsylvania in what is now the United States. Because they settled in territory claimed by Native Americans, they had no recourse to the Pennsylvania colonial government. Accordingly they established what was known as the Fair Play System, with three elected commissioners who ruled on land claims and other issues for the group. In a remarkable coincidence, the Fair Play Men made their own Declaration of Independence from Britain on July 4,1776 beneath the "Tiadaghton Elm" on the banks of Pine Creek.

Less than a mile down river was a stockade built by John Henry Antes. Where the Elem tree is is also where Pine Creek dumps into the West Branch of the Susquehanna and that's where Antes' Fort was built. More about him here-

I 'spose everybody but me knew you could date any Curt Teich postcard by its sequence number by using the guide at:

http://www.lcfpd.org/docs/teich_guide_dating.pdf

Thanks for the Tuck & Tichnor database links.

Q/ Anybody got links for any other postcard publisher databases/archives?

Cheers,
