Snow and More Snow

The Winter Scene Series of 1918

This series includes 8 cards all of which were copyright registered titles. The advertisement below appears on the back of the card entitled "No Dust."

As of August 2021, we have all eight of the images although two are photocopies only. This appears to be a very rare series. All but one of the images in our three collections are marked for Waupun. We would be very interested in having additional images or examples of other towns if anyone has them.

The three copyrighted titles in this series that we have not seen include: "Digging Out," (Update: Copy found at a shop in Oshkosh August 2021) "Winter," and possibly "I Remember in '88," or "On Time (Update: Copy found at a shop in Oshkosh August 2021)." The registered title of "Keep Track Clear" is the same as the labeled card "The Track is Clear."


Advert6isement on the Back of a "No Dust" card


Eight designs of deep snow. 

        We have juggled the camera so that the

snow looks twenty or thirty feet deep.

        We print on them WINTER SCENE AT the name of your town.  There are no winter post cards on the market and these are good ones. 

Price 100-$1.25  200-$2.25 300-$3.00 1000-$9.00
