"Leap Year" Post Cards

1908

Leap Year

No Wedding Bells for Me

Perhaps by  "F S" ???

A set of six post cards, copyright 1908 by A Q Southwick, N.Y carrying the set reference number "N16." They are unsigned, but other "N" series cards were by "F S"  - for discussion about the artist see the Southwick page.

However they are very different to the leap year cards produced by Fred Spurgin in later years, and it seems more likely that the American artist, Rose Hyman, who also did an earlier "no wedding bells for me" card could have done them.
