    Woman's Suffrage: Saxon Car Postcard and Ad along with Three Wagon Cards. A fantastic lot of historical suffrage postcards including an example published by National American Woman Suffrage Association, with the accompanying ad. It pictures the suffragists Alice Snitzer Burke and Nell Richardson who toured the country on behalf of suffrage in their Saxon car. Their journey was made into a popular song called "November." The accompanying ad for the Saxon is probably the first car ad directed to women in general and suffragists in particular. Suffrage auto tours were quite common. Both the card and ad are in excellent condition. Accompanying this card are three wagon images. Suffrage wagons also traveled the countryside on behalf of suffrage. The card that is signed by both Rosalie Jones and Elizabeth Freeman is particularly significant. Both are known suffragists. Jones was sometimes referred to as General Rosalie Jones. This particular cart was on its way to Washington D.C. to take part in the suffrage parade of March 3, 1913, that preceded Wilson's inauguration. A scarce card.
