Oct 24/07 Dear Louise received your card is very nice will be over Sunday with love from FredAt least I think that's Fred...Miss Louise Ludwig lived in Maspeth, Long Island, more familiar to us today as Maspeth, Queens. Back then it must have been quite the country outpost. Love the printed message on the reverse, "Save Steps!" featuring all the latest technology: Mechanical Carriers, Pneumatic Tubes, etc. The card was a business show souvenir, and Lamson Consolidated Store Service Co. was clever to give these away. But what on earth are "Time Systematizers"? Time clocks, perhaps.
As always, check out the blog of our gracious hostess for Postcard Friendship Friday, Beth at The Best Hearts Are Crunchy, where you'll find links for many more vintage postcards.
