Large Letter Postcards
I have always loved linen large letter postcards. They bring back memories of souvenir stands we visited on family vacations during my childhood in the 1950's. They are perfect mini travel posters with views of cities or states squished in the shapes of the letters. While postcards are collected world-wide, the large letter form seems to be unique to the United States. The linen large letters date from the 1930's through the 1950's.
I listed this group today. I have to confess that my favorite is the one from Miami Beach.
I have several more in my store and list new ones whenever I can find them. Click here to see the large letters I currently have listed.
