Marionnettes trade card, 1944

This is a French postcard-sized trade card, advertising aspirin. One of my finds Saturday at the International Post Card Show at the New Yorker Hotel in Manhattan, 34th and 8th Ave. The show runs through today, and is well worth a visit if you're in the neighborhood. It was my first time at the show, although I had heard about the club and the show for years. I was impressed with the number of dealers, and the variety of cards and prices. I'll be back next year. "Marionnettes" was one of two cards I bought from Paula Hill, one of my favorite paper and ephemera dealers.
