This very rare card was mailed in 1897. The ad is folded up inside the pocket that is held closed by the tag seen at the top of the pocket. It was pushed into a slot under the top.
Roth's Glove Emporium 25 W. Fourth Street
This card is also a very rare item. I actually believe that this was a trade card that was transformed into a postcard. I think this is what happened because there was no way this card could be held closed when mailed except by taping it closed. I think I can see a VERY faint hint of tape residue, but if so it was professionally removed.
R. Caplun & Co. 409 W. 5th Street
We now have another rare card of the R. Caplun Company tailors that was mailed in 1909. The card was held closed during mailing by parts of the top of the fence being inserted under the figures left foot and right hand. When you flip down the bottom half of the card you see the 2nd image. When you flip up the top of the 2nd image you see the 3rd image minus the bottom part of the 2nd since it is much too large for my scanner. The last is, of course, the back.

This postcard above was for the Burkhardt Bros. Co. clothing store at 8-12 East 4th St. (across from the Sinton Hotel). It was announcing the arrival of their 1909 Fall clothes. In the early days Burkhardt was located in several places and was known as A. E. Burkhardt Co. In 1891, at that time the nation's largest dealer in raw furs, fell into the hands of creditors after it suffered a devastating fire that destroyed its seven floor store at 4th and Elm Streets. At the same time A. E. and his wife, Emma, had split up after 25 years of marriage. Emma borrowed $15,500 and put up her jewelry as collateral to by what was left of the company at auction. She renamed it Burkhardt Bros. and turned it over to her sons Andreas and Carl to manage. Their store at 4th and Vine Sts. lasted until the 1980s. The first illustration shows the stores at 187-189 W. 4th, 78 W. 4th, and 258-260 Race St. The 2nd illustration shows his store at 113 W. 4th Street that burned down. (These are not postcards).

This real photo postcard, published by W. H. Cubberly a commercial photographer located at 1401 Vine St., looks like it could have been some kind of fabric store although that is strictly a guess.
