National Alliance of Postal Employees Building Map Postcard

Hey there folks!  I've got a spiffy postcard to present today.  It's a locator-style postcard for the National Alliance of Postal Employees Building in Washington, D.C.  And what a beautiful building it was!

Here's a closeup of the building from the front of the postcard...

And here is the building today as a residence.  Can you imagine the great architectural features inside the place today!

And here is the current National Alliance of Postal (and Federal) Employees at 1628 11th St. NW in Washington, D.C.

c. 1927 Singer Sewing Machine American Song Birds Tradecard: Rose-Breasted Grosbeak & Cardinal

Well, it's Springtime and I felt it was time to post something printed with birds on it.  The Rose-Breasted Grosbeaks have arrived with their flash of red and the Cardinals are making themselves more visible.

Here are two cards from the Singer Sewing Machine "American Song Birds" Tradecard series.  The Rose-Breasted Grosbeak card is copyrighted 1927.  The Cardinal card is 1926.

You can see some previous posts that include a Bluebird card from this series (HERE) and another that features a Baltimore Oriole (HERE).
