We found the tailor's address as 16 South Second Street in a December 15 1911 advertisement. Coston's Confectionery advertised in the August 38 1910 Cincinnati Enquirer. So we date this as circa-1910 to -1911. $20.00 o(c)f(k)g(c)g(f)g(t)g(v)

"FREEMAN, / ONE PRICE CLOTHIER / 14, 16 & 18 Asylum St. FIRST CLOTHING STORE FROM MAIN ST. // LITTLE JOHNNY'S FATHER GIVES HIM / A NEW VELOCIPEDE / THE END OF LITTLE JOHNNY'S RIDE" circa 1890 trade card with text on back advertising S.

FREESE. "IT WONT BE LONG NOW." real photo Azo (squares in corners) post card with all-printing on back from inventor-designer Claude H. Freese in Los Angeles California describing an aeroplane-dirigible for about 500 passengers that could be built for about $3,000,000. California-Europe time estimated at 48 hours. Many more details: 5 wings, 10 motors, gasolline carried in planes, etc. We have seen mentions of various Freese designs in the June 1926 Popular Science Monthly, the 6/29/27 Oakland California Tribune, the December 1927 Popular Science Monthly & the 5/12/30 Galveston Daily News--all with differing variants of this design--but we could not find a single example of any of them on postcard, offered or exhibited. Rare and destined for a museum. $62.50 a(p)gc(l)b
FREIER. "FREIER'S / GROCERIES & MEATS / 1149 Huffman Ave. Tel. E. 2292" signage on a delivery truck with a man seated in the passenger side of the cab, approximately 2.5" x 4.5" photograph, slight curl to the paper, very light horizontal striations in the glossy finish attributable to the printing process itself. The address is in Dayton Ohio. The business belonged to Ferd W. and Lydia Freier, according to the pencilled information on the back. Talk about hard to find! $19.00 fo(d)g(f)t
FREISINGER. "Afternoon Rolling Chair Ride, / Atlantic City, N. J." near the Victor Freisinger establishment (conspicuous at the left), post card mailed there 1914, 2 small corner creases, tiny corner crease, minor edge wear. $3.50 ngu
FRENCH. "THE / FRENCH BROS. / BAUER CO. // CREAM TOP MILK / CERTIFIED & INSPECTED MILK" signage on a small delivery truck, approximately 2.5" x 4.5" photo with 4 spots of album paste on back. Pencil annotation on back suggests Cincinnati Ohio as the location -- which we do not doubt. The very successful French Brothers had dairy operations throughout the Miami Valley, Warren & adjacent counties in Ohio, and Kentucky & Indiana locations near Cincinnati. Their Valley View farm furnished "inspected milk," -- i.e., milk which came under frequent scrutiny of a milk commission that had adopted the rules of the Cincinnati Academy of Medicine. $15.00 fo(c)ga
FRENGEN. "This is m/t Trans Holm ex m/s Estrella ... taken in Jössingfjoden Norway, on the South-West Coast, near Kristiansand. Regards, Arild Frengen, Capt." continental size Kodak photograph annotated by her captain on the back. This Norwegian chemical tanker has since been scrapped in Denmark by the Fornaes Shiprecycling Company. The dark area at the left & center shows a plaque mounted on a jagged rock, fixing the place precisely in Norwegian: 'Her fant kampen sted mellom deN britiske destroyer cossack og det tyske hjelpeskip den 16 febr. 1940' -- referring to what is now known as the Altmark incident in which a British destroyer boarded a German ship carrying many British prisoners who were liberated in neutral Norwegian waters. Several interesting points of international law were raised by the incident. All edges are fine; the left edge looks ragged because the rock in the foreground is ragged, not the edge. Rare. $12.50 ns(o)lhg
FRIEDMAN. "Friedman Shoes" from sign on building, also including men wearing cowboy hats, some on horseback; real photo on backing measuring approximately 5-1/2"x3-5/8" (slightly larger than most regular size postcards).

FULLER. "Studebaker's shiped(sic) to / T. J. Fuller Ag't" shown parked in front of Morenci Garage (large Federal Tires sign) & the Albert Green Feed Barn (Baled Hay & Straw / Auto Livery sign) circa-1924 photo within an embossed & pebbled matting, overall size approximately 9-7/8" x 7-3/4". Further down the H. H. SPENCER / DRUGS / GROCERIES sign can be read due to the exceptionally sharp focus. The town is not given but it is definitely Morenci Michigan: Morenci Road is its main street, T. J. Fuller owned property in the adjacent Seneca Township, and Albert Green lived & died there 1902 - 1970.
FULLINGTON. "Sheridan, Mich. / Feb. 2 1911 / Dear Aunt Kate / This is a picture of our machine as we were cutting wood out East of Sheridan. Joe and I are in this picture..." Uncaptioned real photo postcard (so we quote at length from the message) mailed FEB 11 1911 at Sheridan Michigan to Mrs. John Fullington in Lake Odessa Michigan, her annotation 'Uncle Larry's Boys'. Long but inconspicuous crease at lower right front corner. Lumbering is an integral part of the history of Montcalm Township.
