All I can say is, wow. I did no color work on these vintage postcards. These are scans of the real thing. These came in booklets. The postcards were perforated and folded out accordion-style to be torn out and used, only no one ever used any of these. I believe the Great War, World War I, was the first war to use mechanized devices such as trucks, motorcycles, and of course airplanes. I have more than one hundred of these and will continue to scan them for this blog.
The following images are photoshopped collages I've made using some of my postcards from this era, along with other period imagess.
These postage stamps were actually used on other postcards from this 1917-1920 period. The "Argonne Victory" is a newspaper article about important battle of the war.
The lady in this image was a great-aunt of my mother's, who fell very ill in 1919 of the Spanish Influenza, waiting for her brother to return from the war. He returned in fine shape, she never really recovered to full health and died in the late 1920s.
The horse image is for "Mellow Stock Pipe Slices," some form of tobacco I suppose, dating to 1918.
