A very nice Patriotic Postcard from Over the Pond! This beautiful Gold Leafed Postcard reads: "United We Stand" ~ "Dieu Et Mon Droit" ~ "England & Wales, Scotland & Ireland" ~
"Divided We Fall"
Embossed, Gold Leafed, Cut Out Postcard has a tin insert as well as a photograph of a man and his children (photo is sideways). Very little is known about these "tin photo" cards. Perhaps the cards were sold open and individuals could insert their own photo's. The card is sealed completely on the back with a standard undivided postcard back. (if anyone knows anything about the history of these cards, please let us know!)
