Sticky Postcard from the Past

Found a bunch of these in a box with some other Polaphemera.

The sticky glue has not completely dried out, even after nearly 50 years.

Click on it and notice that right where it says "cut through center" there is  a cut, right through that line. Like they planned it.  All of the cards were like that. Precision die cutting of paper and cardstock was a key technology at Polaroid, and still is in many industries.

If you are interested in the history of the Postcarder have a look at my collection:

You'll need to scroll down the thumbnails on the left to find the Postcarders. There are two types an earlier type that was used before the Highlander era and the the ones you show here. Click on the Postcarder to see how they were used.

Keep up the good work on Type 55!
