"Photo / 'Wallendas' / Feet-to-Shoulders / on chair / Ringling Circus 1934" Kodak real photo postcard with caption taken from writing on back, a couple dealer erasure marks on back. In those early days there were only 4 Wallendas. They were the only ones that could perform these dangerous feats, and they were indeed with Ringling in 1934. So the captioning on back checks out. Now consider the photography for a moment: no-blur action photo of a strongly backlit subject. Quite simply the best circus postcard we have ever seen. Probably one of a kind. We could find nothing like it on the internet. $65.000 cfgub

"ROBERT DAY'S RESIDENCE MT. JOY O." with his family outside near the corner porch, sepia-tone Azo (triangles up) real photo postcard, tiny spot on back, light toning in the upper left front corner (just sky), low contrast but the detail is there due to good focus.

"The COEY BICYCLE ATTACHMENT / Invented and patented by C. A. Coey. / Fits any bicycle. Weighs only eight pounds. / Can be folded when not in use. Can be attached in / three minutes. Greatest seller of the age. Agents / wanted. Order today. First order secures agency. / PRICE $12.00 / C. A. COEY & CO. / D-1424 Michigan Avenue / CHICAGO ILLINOIS" postcard with an enlarged black & white illustration of the attachment on back, mailed 1908 to the Romeo Electric Light Plant at Romeo Michigan. Astonishing illustration: a man, woman & child each on their own bicycle riding a railroad track, stabilized to the rail they are not on by the device. [And, hopefully, not encountering a train coming from the other direction! The postcard never stated the detachment time!] This device ostensibly made a smooth paved road out of a railroad track, or so they thought. By showing a family on an outing, the ad is essentially saying "Safe enough for your entire family." By showing a woman riding a bicycle not in a public place and with her husband, she is not being depicted as the loose woman some of her day might have thought. No other offers or displays of this advertising when we searched the internet; all we could find were black & white ads that appeared in a few magazines & journals of the time. So the inventors did try to make money from the invention, but evidently their efforts did not last long. Surprised? We venture to say that the publicity of a few unfortunate accidents put this bad idea to a well-deserved rest. Hopefully not many horrific family outings resulted. $180.00 bi(c)ar(u)fg(c)
