Pennant Message Cards

Pennant Message cards were popular, especially for small towns where a card could have the town name on it.

These were apparently purchased from mass producers by photographers who would then print a town's name and sell them to retail outlets.

We have one card that has the advertising message on the back with the price and quantities available. Except for this advertising card, nothing on the final cards identifies them as Johnson's work, so any pennant type card in your collection could have been from Johnson or any other photographer distributing them. We can associate the card with Johnson only if it says Waupun on it and that's not even a sure thing.
