"Did You Ever Have

Dream Like This?"



"Potatoes Grow Big in Our State"

William H. Martin (1865-1940)

Silver Print postcard, 3.5 x 5.5 inches, 1908

Judging from the copyright date, this was one of Martin's first "Tall-Tale" postcards. By May of 1909, the Martin Post Card Company was reportedly turning out 10,000 cards a day. A year later, output had doubled: a newspaper report said the company was producing seven million photographic post cards per year.
