Washington Park Paint Palette Card

Washington Park


This is a card of Washington Park in Chicago with the scene in the shape of a paint palette. The paintbrushes that are on here are hand colored, and you can see how the scene still shows through the brushes. The publisher is The Suhling & Koehn Co., based in Chicago. There is a warning on the back that postage will be at a letter rate if anything other than the name and address is written on the right-hand side.

I believe there were other cards similar to this one when I bought it, but I can’t recall how many or what scenes they showed. It is an unusual view card since it has the paintbrushes, palette, and hand coloring.

    It seems to me that I’ve seen something like this before, but I can’t remember where.
