This postcard is oversize (5" x 7-3/4") and is made of heavy cardboard. It is ©1965 Faroy, Houston, Texas, Card No. 25-5. My mother added my name to the cup and mailed it to me in the 1960s. On the back is a long letter-length message beginning as follows:
"I thot this card suited you - so I couldn't resist it! Bot it at Harper Court - a new group of 'arty' shops…"
Harper Court is in the Hyde Park area of Chicago. It was purchased by the University of Chicago in 2008 and is now on the verge of redevelopment.
Below are some of my potholder thingies — sugar bowls and creamers to go with the coffee on the postcard.
Share the happiness!
