I bet you're the only one on 2cool (except Aunt Joyce) that was ever around to mail one of those 1cent post cards.

:D
LOL, yore prolly right, Shawn.. Mailed out thousands of them back in the day as advertising....

While I'm still 'in the box' came across this invoice for our brand new Chris Craft cruiser we had down at Corpus on the T-Head to entertain customers... Prices have kinda changed over the years...:rotfl:

In the United States, the earliest known exposition card was issued in 1873, showing the main building of the Inter-State Industrial Exposition in Chicago. This card as well as other early advertising cards, usually bearing vignette designs were not originally intended for souvenirs. Thus the first card printed with the intention for use as a souvenir were the cards placed on sale in 1893 at the Columbian Exposition in Chicago.
During this period all privately printed cards required the regular two cent letter rate postage, the new government printed Postals required only one cent. The government cards had a preprinted bust of either Jefferson or Grant and once cent.
