1907 Sam Mortenson College Postcards Overview
These postcards featured various collegiate subjects. A man or woman was pictured in different poses with a colored college flag behind them.
The postcards include at least one basketball subject – a girl with a ball for Ripon College, a small school in Wisconsin. The fronts also have a 1907 copyright for Sam Mortenson and Company based in Chicago, IL. Backs included a divider line to separate the message from the recipient’s address.
The series could have been a midwestern one as the only schools I have seen to date are from the Midwest.
