Antique Postcard Images From My Personal Collection - Birds
The first set of postcards in this hub has to be my favorite set. What I especially love about them are the lace borders around the cards, as well as the rich colors. Some of these cards have postmarks from 1910 and 1911. I couldn't imagine sending these delicate cards through the mail today. They are marked with "Series 6300" in the lower left corner on the back.
Two of the cards from the following set are postmarked 1913. All but one are marked with "Series 238" and then a letter, with one marked "Series 243 C".
The next cards shown are not part of sets but simply various cards with images of birds. The intense colors just amaze me. Doves and swallows seemed to be popular subjects for postcard images. Of all the cards with birds, they are definitely the most prolific.
