A Fine copy. The postcard shows an empty golf course lined with pine trees. A lake is in the background. Juanita Golf Course was the only public golf course in Kirkland, Washington. It was built and managed by city developer Guy Farrar. The golf course opened in 1932 and became a popular spot for residents. The golf course also included a men's and ladies' club, the Beach Club. Due to city development and plans to build more residential housing, the Juanita Golf Course closed in 1975. The golf course had also been built near a lake and wetlands; flooding proved to be a problem until its closure. However, the city of Kirkland chose to convert the golf course into Juanita Bay Park, which remains a public park to this day.

    No Binding. Condition: Collectible-Fine. Original black and white photo postcard. No date, circa 1920s-1930s. 5 1/2" x 3 1/2." Title printed at the bottom of the image. Postcard is unused. Postcard is very clean and intact except for slight corner wear. A Fine copy. This postcard shows people swimming in a pool at the Sutro Baths in San Francisco, California. Adolph Sutro (1830-1898) was an American engineer, entrepreneur, and the 24th mayor of San Francisco. With the wealth he had acquired from the Comstock Lode, Sutro worked on many projects and developed Sutro Heights and built the Sutro Baths and a new version of the Cliff House. The Sutro Baths were built in 1896 near Cliff House on the beach and featured seven recreational salt- and freshwater pools in a luxurious indoor facility. However, the baths' popular dwindled over the years and the facility had difficulty in gaining revenue. In 1964, city developers bought the property and began demolition of the facility. In 1966, an arsonist destroyed what was left of the baths, and the developers subsequently abandoned their project. The concrete ruins of the Sutro Baths just north of the current Cliff House are still intact and are open to the public as part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area today.

    No Binding. Condition: Collectible-Very Good. Original trade card with an elaborate color illustration of boys at play who are up and about on their feet as they toss a ball around. Emphasis on their footwear, a tie-in to the product advertised, Solar Tip Shoes. No date, circa 1880s-1910s. 5" x 3." Trade card is clean and intact overall but has slight wrinkling at the corners, a microscopic closed tear at top, and some surface tearing limited to the back that has led to some loss of text. A Very Good copy. Trade card for John Mundell & Company. All trade cards can arguably be traced as the prototypes to modern trading cards. However, John Mundell & Co. is a rare example in being one of few companies with a closer connection to the modern baseball trading card. John Mundell, Sr. had founded his shoe company in 1848. He marketed his shoes as having an extra-durable tip that could withstand children's rough play. In a complex series of events, John, Sr.'s son, John Mundell, Jr., founded a company baseball team in 1879 with the same name as its star product, the Solar Tips. The team played well into the late 1880s and may have been active until the closure of the shoe company in 1901. The printing firm, Ketterlinus, was founded in 1842 as E. Ketterlinus & Company by brothers Eugene Ketterlinus (1824-1886) and Paul Ketterlinus (1820-1894). The company became known for its high-quality selection of diverse printed materials such as cards, catalogs, checks, and labels. Eugene's son, John Louis Ketterlinus (1852-1932) took over his father and uncle's business in 1876. John shifted the company's focus onto trade cards. From about the 1890s-1920s, the firm was very successful and opened new buildings as part of its establishment. John became semi-retired in 1919, but company remained in business until about 1970. Trade cards are antique business cards that first became popular during the late seventeenth century in Paris and Lyon, France and London, England. Trade cards were often given by business owners and proprietors to patrons and customers as a way to promote their businesses. Prior to the use of street addresses, trade cards had maps so clients could locate the associated business. Many of these cards also incorporated elaborate designs, illustrations, and other decorative features. Trade cards became popular in the United States during the nineteenth century in the period after the Civil War. The late nineteenth century also saw the advent of trade card collecting as a hobby. While they are no longer in use, trade cards influenced the formation of trading cards and were the predecessors of modern-day business cards.
