American Advertising in the 1860's and 70's came in many forms, including circulars and broadsides. Trade cards were introduced later in the century. Some of the fanciest advertising came in the form of postal covers. Merchants could mail correspondence nation wide for 3cts, and many took advantage of this cheap postage to advertise their products while sending correspondence to their customers.
In this example of advertising, Mr. Troemner mailed postal envelopes to his customers with images of his large factory in Philadelphia. This was a inexpensive form of advertising, and it gave his customers an impressive view of his business. The cover has a vf Philadelphia postmark, and is franked with the 3ct banknote issue, with 5 in the center of a target cancel

Michael Bond - the man behind Paddington Bear

Michael Bond - the man behind Paddington Bear

"All the same ... it's a very important name. And I don't expect there are many bears in the world called Paddington!"

A lonely toy bear on an empty shop shelf on Christmas Eve in 1956 first captured the attention of Michael Bond, who kindly shared Paddington with the world.
