  • Dutch Country pick-up baler

    At the time (1970s), there must have been a feeling that sign had to be in every postcard or the card would not sell. That may have been true, since all the cards looked about the same. This unused Stel-Mar card 134162 (and A-12) does however show a “modern pick-up baler” which we guess would not be pulled by horses if it was in some other part of the country. Grade: 1

  • Pittsburgh, Harley Hotel

    Two of these unused cards are available.  The reverse caption says “We’re going to be your favorite hotel,” and for all we know it’s a great place to stay (or was), but the card itself is devoid of people and makes the place look as bleak as a prison camp.  By now they must have sorted that out.  One would hope.  Grades: 1
