You cannot buy auction lots of US PPCs - or dumpster dive thru bargain boxes of US PPCs - and not begin to think that there is a century-long Genuine National Obsession with "The Maid Of The Mist".

http://www.maidofthemist.com/ ... for the fortunate until-now-innocent

I was immensely pleased, pawing thru 100s of PPCs of Niagara Falls, to come across this delightful change of pace.

Nothing of interest on the address side of the card: no imprint, no logo, no nothing.

Cheers,

Here is a card I bought several years ago. I have scanned it as it is mounted in my advert cover / card collection as well.

Q/ So how come nobody ever mailed any of these cards? The hygenic factory didn't want anyone licking stamps on their premises?

Well, okay, be that way: I'll answer my own question.

Yes, Virginia, you can find these cards GPU (Genuinely Postally Used).

Q/ Does anyone else agree that, in the Bargain Box Universe, these "Home of Shredded Wheat" cards are the most common factory visitor card of them all?

Cheers,

I'm going to say, no, since I've never seen one until now. But I do see a lot of Ford factory cards from Detroit and cereal factories in Battle Creek.
