THE BRADFORD BELTING COMPANY : (1907) CALENDAR : CINCINNATI, OHIO

This vintage real photo advertising postcard served as a New Year’s greeting card. The postcard provided a January, 1907 calendar and provided wishes for a happy and prosperous new year. The postcard advertised the Bradford Belting Company as the manufacturer of “Monarch Leather Belts and Cement”. In addition, the postcard hawks “monarch belt dressing” which came in stick or liquid form. The card has a Cincinnati postmark from the year 1906. The addressee on the card, presumably one of Bradford’s customers, is the firm, Straw Brothers which was located in Easton, Ohio. Preliminary research yielded little information about the Bradford company. The Motor Way (1907) reports that Pope Motors built a business car (open delivery wagon) for Bradford. The photograph on this advertising postcard features a pretty woman writing a letter by lamplight. Using female models to sell products in male dominated industries or areas of interest, is a practice that continues today. The card was published by the Photographic Company of America, located in Chicago, Illinois It is numbered 1552. This vintage postcard is in very good condition (see scans).
