A Week of Busy Bears -- Saturday [early 1900s]

From our collection of old postcards ...

Busy Bear postcard Series 79 - Saturday
Busy Bear postcard Series number 79. The art is the work of Bernhardt Wall and the cards were published by the Ullman Manufacturing Company, New York, in the early 1900s. Series Title: The days of the week. Today's card: Saturday ... Going to Market. Stop by tomorrow for the last card in the series ... Sunday. To see all the other days of the week and the back of the cards, please see our earlier posts this week.

Linking up today with Eileen's Saturday's Critters :-) Thank you Eileen!

Thank you for stopping by John's Island.

  6. Hi John, I am just stopping back to say thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Have a happy weekend!

  7. A vegetarian bear?! Looks like she only has fruits and vegetables in her basket...or perhaps she just goes shopping for the vegetables, and does her own hunting another day (not listed on the bear calendar).
