For What It’s Worth

Popular holiday postcards at the turn of the last century included July 4th. This example, printed in Germany, depicts a young girl waving an American flag and supposedly her dad wearing a red, white and blue neck tie shooting off a revolver in his right hand. Fireworks explode around them. Times have changed since 1910 when gunfire was a celebratory experience! Value around $10.
