Here is perhaps one of the rarest postcards in my collection.  A real-photo postcard (a postcard made out of an actual photograph) showing an entrance way to the famous Cliff House Restaurant on the coast of San Francisco.  What really makes the card special is that it was sent by someone who identifies two ladies who posed in the picture.

Very nice! Grandma looks a bit grumpy...
There was a little girl,
            Who had a little curl,
Right in the middle of her forehead.
            When she was good,
            She was very good indeed,
But when she was bad she was horrid.
