Funny Vintage Postcards

I picked up this old postcard at a flea market, I thought it was funny.
The note starts off "nothing doing on the west side of Cusson PA". I can't quite make out the next line.
It is postmarked 1909.

For those of you who collect old postcards - do you look for ones that are used or blank ones?? I've wondered about that. I personally like to read the old notes.

Linked up to The French Factrice for Postcard Friendship Friday.


  1. Hi!
    Cute postcard. Although it looks like that would hurt. Have a great day!

    A View of My Life

  2. I like the messages too, although it's interesting to me how hard the handwriting is to read.

  3. the second line says....we will have to play all -of there. i couldn't make out the one word. i like the ones with writing!

  4. I look for ones on certain topics and in very good condition.

  5. My Goodness! That is quite unusual subject matter for a postcard! That's really funny.

    Happy PFF!

  6. I mush prefer used ones, especially if there is a clear date. That is a great card!

    Could it be "we will have to play all east of there" ?

  7. Cute card! I think I prefer the used card .. so much fun to imagine what their lives were like. Happy PFF

  8. I too love cards that have writing on them and now I'm even looking for interesting stamps. cute card. I see you have Eddie Ross on your blog roll, good news with him winning the window contest. Happy PFF

  9. I look for the ones with messages too! I just love the extra glimpse into the past! This is a hilarious card! It's a great find:)
