Product Description
A bit of history.
From the 1940's and very used. The back was pasted into a book- then it was removed.

The title says: Battle of Atlanta - Cyclorama Building Atlanta Georgia (American Civil War and Gone with the Wind)
The original postcard is an alter photograph with pen and ink drawing on textured paper.
The back was ruined so I did not scan it.

I consider this a bit of propaganda as its one of the postcards that was seen as worthy of high grade paper during a time of rationing.
This is a very high resolution digital copy. You will need to print it.

I rather like old postcards. Indeed I have been known to use them as a reason to learn cursive. Who is not tempted to read other peoples mail?

As I see it there is a story behind this picture.
So I print them up and get students to write a postcard. Something more than "having a wonderful time - wish you were here."
Witty perhaps? Or just chatty.
They can even send the postcard - I check it over, record a mark, give them a 1 cent (Canadian stamp - generally a flower, puffin or baby polar bear.) Frank the stamp and hand it to the class post person who slips it in the locker/mail slot as addressed.

These scans are 600 bpi so you can size the image to requirements- use a whole standard sheet of paper if you want.

I am offering this one for free as I think once you try it you will want the others that I have listed.

Feed back would be really nice!!!!
