Spring Forward Tonight [Bronco Bustin' 1908]

Excuse us, but we were trying to find SOMETHING to remind our friends here in the USA and Canada that tonight is the night to SPRING FORWARD! Welcome to Daylight Saving Time!

From our collection of old postcards ....

Ralph sent this card to his Sister in 1908, which we surmise not by the postmark but by the date he wrote on the card.  "Broncho Busting" published by Detroit Publishing Company and Copyright 1904 by C. A. Kendrick. Card number 9243.

If you are on a cruise ship tonight you might find one of these cards on your pillow when you return to your stateroom from dinner ... they may also give you one of these when crossing a time zone and losing an hour.

Thank you for stopping by John's Island


  1. The Bronco Busting is a cool postcard, love that image.. Have a happy weekend!

  2. this is the hard time change. :)

  3. This is a postcard for me, I'm a cowboy fan :))
    And I have something for those people who never
    know how to set the clock when time changes.
    In spring you bring your garden furniture forward to the garden,
    in autumn you bring them back into the basement/shed :)
    Have a great weekend John!

  4. Thanks for the reminder, John. It will be GREAT to have more light in the afternoon.

  5. An interruption to the state cards? That's okay. While I was hangin' in there...enjoyed the bronc bustin' too.

  6. I don't like the time change. I'd rather have the light in the morning for my walk. : )

  7. Yes, lots of spring in those horses and I like your idea of reminding us to set our clocks ahead.

  8. Hello John, Yes I would be happy if you linked up your post that has a critter on the postcard.. Enjoy your day!

  9. A very lively card! I noticed in your profile description you mention radio as a hobby. Is that ham radio?
