Singer Advertisement

Singer Advertisement

This was a unique one!  Tucked in with the other Maher Postcards was this cutout of a girl in a ruffly dress.  The back showed it was part of an advertisement for Singer Sewing Machines.  I poked around the internet and found a copy of the full card posted with a copyright date of 1902, and the store printed on the back indicates an address in Buffalo.  Sure enough, I found a newspaper ad for that exact store.

Not bad to put all the pieces together so easily!  I still have no idea why grandma had these postcards or why this advertisement was cut out and saved along with them, but it’s definitely interesting enough to share.
