Here’s to the girls of the American Shore

Here's to the girls of the american shore

1909 postcard. Private Collection. Click for larger image.

Well, if there ever was a better excuse to drink..! This gent was colorized with red hair too. Is he supposed to represent an Irish immigrant? Aw, sure look it!

The photo of this gent (with, again, an attitude-lol-) was taken by Theodor Eismann, New York. The postcard was copyrighted in 1909 and sent the following March.

I’ve decided to take a picture of it instead of a scan, the golden tones come out better.

In fact, I ordered this card last July 1915, but the seller had misplaced it. I had completely given up on it but was very surprised to find out Marilyn of Etsy’s VintagenutsInc decided to send it to me at no cost when she found it again last month. So very nice of her!
