Jakey keeps the postcard on his little desk in his bedroom with the photograph of
the dogs' tea party and a photograph of Bells. Now he picks up the postcard to

can find almost anything pictured on the front of those little 3.5inchby5.5inch
pieces of cardboard—everything from buildings to cartoons to real people to
beautiful scenery of the local countryside. In this chapter are some postcards from
a bygone era that really seem to fit no category at all. This catchall chapter is
made up of everything from real photograph postcards to those that advertise
