"Did You Ever Have

Dream Like This?"


 

 

"Harvesting a Profitable Crop of Onions"  

William H. Martin (1865-1940)

Silver Print postcard, 3.5 x 5.5 inches, 1909

 

" 'Dad' Martin of Ottawa, Kansas, produced the quintessential exaggerated postcard. Making use of myriad subjects, his work--the best and most varied in the genre--displays a sense of action notably absent in the others."
--Cynthia Elyce Rubin and Morgan Williams, Larger Than Life: The American Tall-Tale Postcard, 1905-1915 (New York: Abbeville Press, 1990
