The messages on these wonderful postcards are often easy to figure out, even if I don't find it quite as humorous as someone from the early 1900s might, but that is not always the case. Some of them completely fall flat and I can't figure out for the life of me why the statement would be on the card much less sent to someone. Some seem so unfunny and not clever that I find myself returning to reread the statement hoping the light bulb in my head will turn on. Most often it is the saucy humor found on the seaside postcards that go over my head but alas I am not a fan of that kind of comedy all around anyway.
Here is one I don't quite get what is so funny or clever about it:
From around the 1950s
From around 1900 - 1909
A Linen from 1951
A Linen from around 1940
