1908-RPPC-Black Woman Selling Food Outside
Item #: NEW-0015785

Click image to enlarge
I can't make out the title in white on the bottom but I image that this was a neighborhood outdoor eatery.  Corner crease on bottom left side.  It's a thick card which I didn't notice until this posting.  Looking at it carefully, I see now that a great card I thought was from Nashville, has the wrong kind of back.  It was obviously done by someone who sought to enhance the value to a Nashville collector.  It's still a good card that I will be losing a great deal of money on.

Click image to enlarge
Reduced price

They don't come any better than this.  Postmarked from Mammoth Springs , real photo postcard.  This was actually an event that happened.  Sometime ago, I found a newspaper report of this and though I can't find it again, I copied the account. " Killed by Posse in Bank-Three masked men entered the Citizens Bank at Mammoth Springs Arkansas and robbed the bank while two others stood guard outside.  The cashier was locked in the vault and the robbers took all the cash inside.  For 10 days bank officials have known that an attempt would be made to rob he bank.  In preparation the Sheriff had rounded up a posse and was hidden in the back room of the bank when the robbery occurred.  As the robbers were leaving, the officers opened fire on them with Winchester rifles.  One of the robbers who was instantly killed, had 22 bullets enter his body.  The other robbers were captured uninjured." 

Small corner crease on the upper left hand corner and some wear to the others. Light indentations can be seen when the card under a light with some light scratching.   The body is in the foreground on the left bottom area. 

Note:  I don't use watermarks as a rule but I don't want this item to be copied

Goat Man-RPPC-Early Pose-Child-Georgia
Item #: NEW-0014353

Click image to enlarge
This real photo postcard is in good condition, but it was never mailed.  There is a pencil notation on the back which reads, "The Goat Man" "Chess" McCartney and Son" Jeffersonville Georgia.  I purchased from a long time Georgia postcard dealer who said he had seen enough postcards of the Goat Man in his years concurred with the identification.  Since I purchased this card I found a book on the goat man and this exact image is in the book.
http://www.georgiaencyclopedia.org/articles/history-archaeology/charles-mccartney-goat-man-1901-1998

A traveling preacher, Charles "Ches" McCartney was a significant folk and religious figure in Georgia for more than four decades, and a likely influence on the works of the writer Flannery O'Connor. 
Charles McCartney, also known as the "Goat Man," was a traveling preacher who roamed central Georgia in a goat-pulled wagon in the mid-twentieth century.
The Goat Man
He traveled around the United States driving an iron-wheeled caravan of between twelve and thirty goats and was known as the "Goat Man."

1944 Real Photo Postcard-Horses in New York City Streets
Item #: NEW-0014167

Click image to enlarge
Unusual card which is  quite a poser.  It was mailed to Nashville Tennessee and used in the Bedford County Times in Shelbyville Tennessee.  My research indicates that it is a New York scene and somehow these horses had some connection to the Metropolitan Opera according to the back message.  "Metropolitan Opera Mares Kate & Molly".  There is a glass globe in the street which reads Subway IRT which stands for Interborough Rapid Transit Company. There is a sign for a soda pop. Some wear to the card.  Shelbyville is a famous horse town but known for its Tennessee Walking horses which these don't fit.  I'm sure research will turn up an interesting story.
