This pennant card really underplays how amazing Chicago is, with simple descriptions that consist of “fine place,” “interesting,” and “worth seeing.” The red pennant with “Chicago” on it is made of felt. It was mailed in 1914 from Chicago to Elkhart, Indiana.

The next three cards are all pennants with Dutch children. They all look like they’re in the same series- the pennants have the same font on them and little bows in the same spots along the pole. All three were mailed in 1913.
