A whimsical scene of two turkeys motoring past the Capitol captures the fanciful spirit of holiday postcards during the height of the genre’s popularity, 1907 to 1915, sometimes referred to as the Golden Age of Postcards. Lithographic postcards printed in Germany enjoyed brisk sales because of their novel, attractively colored images. Holiday cards, available only around the occasions they marked, were especially desirable to postcard enthusiasts. The message on the reverse indicates that this card was written by a postcard fan. Thelma, the sender, shares with her friend that she received 15 postcards for her birthday, and acknowledges the card sent from the addressee.
