Interesting postcards. I have never seen these before so thanks for posting this. Their condition is a bit rough - perhaps someone tried to smoke them?

Quite a different time. The prize for a correct entry was a carton of cigarettes!

Clever marketing. You had to listen to a radio show called "Your Hit Parade" then guess which of the 15 songs played would finish 1, 2 & 3 at top of the charts for a specific week. This card here is dated July 22, 1936. Out of curiosity, here are chart toppers for week of July 25, 1936
