21841B***********>>>>>>>>>YOU ARE BIDDING FOR 1 UNIQUE HISTORIC SOUVENIR POST CARD OF THE 1904 ST LOUIS WORLDS FAIR. CALLED A HOLD TO LIGHT CARD, IT IS MEANT TO BE VIEWED IN FRONT OF A LIGHT SOURCE, WHICH CAUSES THE CARD TO COME TO LIFE AS IF T WERE LIGHTS WITHIN. THIS VIEW IS OF THE CASCADE GARDENS AND THE GRAND BASIN. THIS CARD HAS BEEN BONDED TO A GLASS PANEL, AND MOUNTED IN A CHAIN WIRE EDGING FRAME. T IS NO HANGER CHAIN ON BACK, BUT IT WOULD BE EASY TO ADD. THIS PICTURE CARD IS 9" BY 6" , AND IS A RATHER UNIQUE SIZE, AS THE ONLY ONE I HAVE SEEN HAVE BEEN THE NORMAL 3 X 5". SOME FOXING AROUND THE EDGES FROM FROM THE YEARS, BUT MOSTLY ON THE TOP, AS SEEN IN THE PHOTOS. IT LOOKS LIKE THE ADDRESS FROM THE MAILER ENVELOPE HAS BEEN GLUED TO THE LOWER RIGHT CORNER. THE THIRD PHOTO SHOWS THE CARD WITH A 7W BULB HELD BEHIND IT. TWO FLAT RIM FLAKES ON THE BOTTOM EDGE , NOT MUCH NOTICED, AND DEFINITELY NOT DISTRACTING. A WONDERFUL ADDITION TO ANY WORLD'S FAIR COLLECTION.
