This is a Harry H. Hamm colour postcard No. 103182. Not posted or written. HHH were in business 1907-1923 so from circa 1915-1920 perhaps. Main St looking east - Kalamazoo

I bought this chrome 50's PC for the car image - not the scene. Could someone please identify the car - Dodge/Chrysler????

Town Hall and Famous Noah Webster Statue, West Hartford, Connecticut
Publisher: H. P. Kopplemann. Unused and unwritten

Happy to see Cardcow has this PC at $14.95 (used)

In existence before "New Orleans" even bore its name, and having served as a Spanish armory, Tujague's restaurant has survived decades of war, depression, fire and plague to bring you a tradition of culinary excellence undiminished today. http://www.tujaguesrestaurant.com

I bought the card because I liked the scene with American cars. Guessing late 60's. Thos Dunne Co, New Orleans / Curteichcolour

Card says 1856 + >110 ... looks like they re-used an image ... no CT serial number in the stamp box?

Thanks

..spotted that Ikey 110 + 1856 = 1966, so was thinking perhaps late 60's. Could be a re-print.

Code in stamp box is 4DK - 453. Any idea from that?

P Guichet noted - he bought from the original owner.

The card was published in 1964.

If you google 'images of cars from 1964', you will see the flat hoods & tail fins ... not this image.

If you google 'images of cars from 1956', you will find yourself getting warmer ;)

Fastest way I know to date an American car.

Cheers,

I have a collection of cards which were sold in vending machines at various events like car shows in the early 1960s. While not specifically post cards, they were the same size and were sometimes sent in the mail. I like them because they show some rare and unusual cars, several 'one of a kind' show or custom cars included.

Not a car and not a post card actually, but pretty nevertheless. It's a Labatt's promo item and is really all about a London Ontario restoration of this vehicle.

The KEYSTONE STEAMER 12/6/1899 Originally built in Lebanon, Pa. The company moved to Reading Pa. in early 1900.

I bet that was a hoot to drive over dirt roads and ruts at a whooping 6 m.p.h.! It must have scared every cow, chicken and horse for a mile in every direction.

P.S. This is a great thread! Thanks to whoever started it.

Postcard - written not posted
Bought for the car images
Caption in German. GOES Town Hall. 17th - 18th century style with construction oldest part in 14th century - last restored in 1974

I see Renault 4, VW Golf, Peugeot, early Japanese Nissan/Toyota?

I owned a Renault 4 in the late 70's/early 80's - they made 8 million of the 4 over a 30 year period - it was the first mass-production hatchback car. The novel gear-change lever took a little getting use to.

I also had a VW Golf GT - which someone kindly stole one night. It was found much later but after the insurance company had paid out.
