I just bought these yesterday from my favorite used-book store, Cellar Stories Books
, and thought I would share them with you all.
Listed in chronological order. Newest comments at the end.
The top one is from the late 50's early 60's but the bottom on? Same era?

The French phrase on the first is funny - "He felt like a turnip among the tanks." Tank in the sense of military application. It qualifies for my book of odd French colloquialisms. And I've seen those of the first type before but can't place where. I think mom's mother may have had some.

Interesting memento of a less politically correct era.
It was copyrighted by an O.J. Rice of Red Lodge, Montana in 1939. I can't find anything else about the dude, but it is kind of sad if the only trace left of you is some racist doggerel. Pretty embarassing when you go to the trouble of copyrighting it.

What was common place then is considered racist now. They are neat old cards Paul.
