The Jumbo Postcards 12 / 16
During, and shortly after World War II oversized black and white cards were published by the Jumbo Postcard Co. of San Antonio, describing various themes including airliners. Quite hard to find, and easily damaged, almost none are in excellent condition. I've acquired a few, including 2 mint cards, but would love to know about, and particularly have scans of others. Any contributions would be very much appreciated
