Card du jour

Have been collecting vintage postcards of Built America since 1970. Would like to share cigar postcards with the brethren.

Got many cigars postcards scanned from my collection and glommed from the Internet.
Once had 180,000 vintage USA postcards, but downsized to about 90,000 when I retired in 2004.

One cool thing about living around here is the Marsh Wheeling advertisements still on buildings from many decades ago. Along with the Mail Pouch painted barns..but both are getting fewer each year.

Have been hesitant about posting cards from my collection -- like showing home movies of your vacation.
Here is another drugstore interior -- from North Branch MN, circa 1910. You can see the photographer reflected in glass of back cabinet.
