Dialect post card, 1913

A little Dutch girl and a funny dialect message. Dialect humor was all the rage in vaudeville, which was in its heyday in 1913. I love the card's bright colors and border.

Message to Miss Ruth Corcoran: "Some class to this town alright. If it is pleasant don't forget to come down on the 2."

  1. A gorgeous postcard - that border is wonderful - in fact, I don't think I've ever seen one quite like it. Do you think it's meant to give the effect of a Dutch ceramic tile? Happy PFF!
