Above is an advertising postcard for Porch Furniture with a May 1914 calendar. This style of postcard was designed to be sent by furniture sellers. This, and other advertising postcards with calendars, typically were published in series, with one card for each month.
The postcard above does not list a publisher. The two postcards below also have pictures of wicker porch furniture. These were published by Grand Rapids Furniture Record Co. © 1912 and have verses on the front and 1913 calendars and advertising messages on the backs. Grand Rapids, Michigan was a major furniture manufacturing center, and the Grand Rapids Furniture Record was a publication of the Grand Rapids Furniture Manufacturers Association.
