TWO BEAUTIFUL HOUND DOGS JUST CHILLIN IN THE GRASS (1930)

This vintage real photo postcard captures two beautiful hound dogs relaxing in a field. Although they are at rest, they are alert and observing their environment. Maybe they are hoping that a rabbit may have the misfortune of hopping into their line of vision. The postcard has a cute caption, The card was published by Valentine and Sons. The printing company was founded in Dundee, Scotland in 1851. The founder was James Valentine (1815-1879). The company became the leading manufacturer of picture postcards in Scotland. After James died, his two sons operated the business. The company was purchased by John Waddington Limited in 1963, In 1980, the Valentine business was bought by Hallmark Cards. In 1994, the company ceased operations. This postcard is part of a series (no. 574-9). The postmark indicates that it was stamped in 1930 in Haltwhistle, England and the card was sent to Darlington, England. The postcard has a light crease in the bottom right hand corner (only seen on close inspection) and is in overall good condition.
