ILLINOIS postcard - Princeton, IL
This is just a GREAT old card of substantial importance in that it actually pictures John Howard Bryant and his Pioneer Cabin. Was not familiar with this person, but the pictures that I found looked EXACTLY like the man standing next to the log cabin (with his hat in his hand), so I feel comfortable that it IS HIM!! I found that he was a poet like his brother William Cullen Bryan and that he arrived in Princeton in 1832 and had built the cabin when he was 25. It states on the card itself, that it was built and occupied by him in June 1834 - and was destroyed in 1895.
Case and Vaughan Art Co Pub is on the face of the card
mailed in 1911 from Princeton with a clear flag killer and is addressed to Mrs Franklin Farrel
- Please note that the majority of the cards are over 50 years old and as such, are sold AS IS. Tears will be noted but it would be too timely to note each fault on every card. If condition is important to you - contact us with our number in the title & what it is that you would like to know or what it is that you would like pictured more closely.
- Again, because of the age of the cards - they are noted as being USED - no matter if they are written on or not.
