Wish You Were Here, from Cobb Shinn


Here's a postcard by Cobb Shinn, one of the very ugly cards he produced in great quantity during the postcard boom of the 1900s-10s. This one doesn't credit a maker, and was postally used in 1911. I have lots of Shinn cards, but I think I'll keep most of them to myself, unless there are some dissenting opinions out there. Do you like this postcard? I guess maybe if you thought of it as a statement in modern art, or something ...


It's hideous, but it's great. Please post more of them.
I agree with the poster above! I'd love to see these - and I do like it actually as it is interesting in its weirdness.
