I recently got mail from Steph Dobson, and one of the goodies she gave me is a vintage photograph of a child (girl?) and a dog (in motion, like most pets when you want to take a photo).

I'm guessing Steph read my comment in the group discussion about especially loving photos  'with children and dogs." Thanks so much, Steph!

Down the road I'll share some of the other children / dog photos I have!

Howdy Bill, Looking forward to you sharing some of your vintage goodies. I, too, like it when vintage and newer pieces are combined. Glad you are here!

Hi Carl, I like the postcards you shared. The Chrysler Building pc is my fave. It is a 'linen' postcard (linen because of the surface texture, not what it is made of). Linen postcards typically have saturated colors and white borders. The scenic postcards were also know as "views." 

If anyone is interested, Collectors Weekly has a great article on Linen Postcards.
