This interesting postcard shows Benjamin Franklin conferring with Army Engineer Charles Elliott Mills on some type of fortification.  I'm not sure about the date and I can only guess that they are erecting a fort to stave off the French army, up there in Canada?  Indians were a problem back then too. (Of course the Indians probably didn't think that they were the problem).  I know very little about Ben Franklin and that's probably why I didn't bid on the postcard, haha.

The above are two good examples of mildly risqué Bamforth Co. postcards.  Here is another:

Some grapefruit from Florida.  Close up, they don't look particularly fresh.

Well, no wonder.  1914.  These particular grapefruit are almost 105 years old.

A comic card from a postcard auction past.  I didn't bid on it.  If it had been a picture of a real watermelon set on a toy truck, then I would have tried for it.
