Man in Moon Enjoys the View! Paper Moon Real Photo Postcard
I will continue to post the 12 real photo postcards of paper moons we got at the Postcard show. I really like the way the Man in the Moon casts his eye on the two stylish young women in this card that is from an unidentified studio. I feel that the way the moon's face is painted really affects the mood of the card.
"Mooning" Three Ladies on a Paper Moon Real Photo Postcard
This is another of the 12 real photo postcards we got at the postcard show. "Mooning" is written in pencil at the bottom of the card. It is unmailed but addressed to N. W. Robertson in Blainstown, Iowa with a message "Come take a trip in my moon." and signed "Chic" .
Dapper Young Man on a Paper Moon - Real Photo Postcard
We did not attend our usual mounty antique show since they have moved to a venue with $10 parking. We did attend a different smaller show and found four images - three tintypes and one postcard. Isn't he handsome and well dressed? The seller said he was a black man but I think not. He skin is rather dark but his features do not seem black to me. This is my only paper moon image that shows a base for the moon.
Mamma in Her Bonnet - Paper Moon Real Photo Postcard
Last week we got three paper moon postcards at an antique show and two on the internet. I like this cheerful middle aged woman in her bonnet and plaid shirtwaist. The back of the card is inscribed, "if it is not cold I will come up the saturday morning before New Year and will get off at Cl….. (?) Zaidee & Ed - Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Mamma".
A Car Salesman on a Paper Moon - Real Photo Postcard
This is another of the cards from our great day at the antique show. It is of E. C. Cunningham - Agent for High Class Motor Cars of Atlanta, Missouri. Yes, there is a Atlanta in Missouri! Who knew? It is the only advertising paper moon postcard we have.
