TOM JONES 1910 EXPOSITION CARDS
This is another example of a publisher recycling their own cards for another purpose. Apparently they used their entire current production of post cards for this special occasion. I would be foolish to claim this is the complete set but until someone out there proves me wrong, just call me a fool.
NIGHT IN CINCINNATI
Unfortunately there seems to have been a tendency to trim these cards as three of these four have been cut down. I have no idea how many cards this unknown publisher produced of this series.
With the discovery of the card below I now know that all four of the cards above have been trimmed. The card below is a complete specimen. With the two borders around the image it makes the card quite a bit larger than a normal card and with the soft paper material it is made from making it very easy to smash up the edges, it is easy to see why the excess was trimmed on many of these cards. I must comment on the scenes these cards show, they are unique, not seen on any other card I have ever viewed. There is no publisher or printer mentioned on these cards.
NIGHT IN CINCINNATI BOOKLET
All my questions about these cards are now answered. I have come into possession of a reprinted booklet that was put out in 1918 by the Cincinnati Chamber of Commerce with the complete set of these images. I am showing the complete booklet starting with the cover.

According to my theory that all sets are even numbered, there should be at least one more card to complete this set.
