Snow and More Snow

The Winter Scene Series of 1918

This series includes 8 cards all of which were copyright registered titles. The advertisement below appears on the back of the card entitled "No Dust."

As of this writing, we have five of the images from Morgan Williams. For the other three, we have titles only. This appears to be a very rare series. All five of the images in our collections are marked for Waupun. We would be very interested in having additional images or examples of other towns if anyone has them.

We have more than eight titles that we have guessed to be on the Winter series, but until we see a copy, we can't be sure. Johnson's ad says there are only eight.

The three copyrighted titles in this series that we have not seen include: "Digging Out," "Winter," and possibly "I Remember in '88," or "On Time." The registered title of "Keep Track Clear" is the same as the labeled card "The Track is Clear."

HERE IS A NEW SERIES 

Eight designs of deep snow. 

        We have juggled the camera so that the

snow looks twenty or thirty feet deep.

        We print on them WINTER SCENE AT the name of your town.  There are no winter post cards on the market and these are good ones. 

Price 100-$1.25  200-$2.25 300-$3.00 1000-$9.00
