African American Illustrated Postcards (Down in Sunny Dixie) Collection
- US TxAM-C 689
This collection consists of an illustrated mailer postmarked New Orleans, and hand-addressed to Toledo OH, containing 18 accordion-folded 6in x 4in color photos purporting to show (stereotypical happy variety) black life in the south, with two songs, "Dixie Land" and "Dixieland for M" printed on the inside of the mailer with a cypress tree on one side of the fold and a photo of a black man and woman next to the address label.
These were reproduced from hand-tinted black and white originals. Postcard-size images, but double-sided without space for messages.
