This is by far one of the better finds this past year.This lot is 11 postcards from THE HOW store in Leroy Illinois.They date from 1906-07.All of them feature Buster Brown images(and his dog Tige).Buster was created in 1902 by artist Richard Felton Outcault.I find it an interesting bit of history to know that in his early days Outcault worked for Thomas Edison.Thomas Edison visited Leroy in 1893.Many thanks to my pal mike who found these for me.
