re: CH Philatelic Office: holiday greetings souvenir folder

I like the artwork of the mail carrier drudging through the snow, loaded down with packages. Also, the block of 4 illustrates that moment when the mailman holds out his hand with a letter, and it reminded me of this unused postcard I have in my collection showing that same moment with a small girl. Perhaps you have seen this one before, ikeyP, as I have seen this image several times looking through dealer stock. It is a common card around here.

The back side reads "BAMFORTH, Publisher, N.Y. City." I assumed you might have this RPPC, too.

One needs to Google Deeply to get past a contemporary Robert McCrum to reach:

'Teeth pulled while you wait' 1905 (on Getty Images)

'Don't Go Near the Bar Room Brother!' 1906 (on Getty Images)

https://bowlersandhighcollars.com/tag/robert-mccrum/ ... 2 images at Bowlers And High Collars:

Quote:

"... From another time they were often beautiful, funny, adorable, or just bad. Today we remember them on the photographs they left behind. Images from the collection of C. E. Ryan."



And, of course, let's not confuse him with Master Cartoonist R Crumb:

I love that "Teeth Pulled While You Wait." That is classic. It would be fun to drop one of those cards on the coffee table in the waiting room of my dentist.

I would print a small pile, and leave them there ... let it look like the dentist put them out for people to take home.

Does anyone know if the Bamforth postcard printer is an offshoot of the Bamforth of Holmfirth in the UK - printer of somewhat "risqué" seaside postcards from Blackpool et al ?

'
I've always ignored any variations in the name.

It never occurred to me that there might be more than one anything named "Bamforth" Angry

The Bamforth postcard company in the UK was a very successful publisher of postcards. They started out as a conventional card maker, but they have become well known as producers of cartoon type postcards containing fat ladies, voluptuous young ladies, small boys and red faced men with snub noses and highly suggestive captions, managing to appear quite smutty and quite innocent at the same time ( it's all in YOUR mind you know!).

I think that 2 postcard publishers with the same quite unusual name ( Bamford is a more usual form, as in JCB, the UK equivalent of Caterpillar in the US ) is unlikely.

Look at www.bamforthpostcards.co.uk
