Man’s Two Best Friends

This man is shown posing with two of what were probably his favorite possessions, a circa 1913-14 Overland speedster and his dog. This sporting automobile is equipped with a folding top which was an extra and electrical equipment which was new at the time on most vehicles.

Great Gimmick

Although, what is in it for the newspaper subscriber? This is an original postcard that was postmarked March 24, 1910. A new Model T Ford Touring had a factory price of $950, so it was quite a prize for selling newpaper subscriptions. I wonder if O.G. Nelson got his new Ford….

Not a new concern

These early motorists appeared in many different series of postcards all with this same Packard. The 1913 NY license plate shows better on other cards.
