I Had The Blues (Vintage Postcard), circa early 1900s.
This souvenir leather postcard was designed by famed postcard artist, Raphael Tuck. This image of a nurse pushing a baby carriage escorted by two uniformed gents was used for souvenir cards across the United States. The "I had the blues" sentiment was a popular one to send while away from home.
