    Description

    Woman's Suffrage: Five Jane Addams and Pageant Troupe Cards. This lot contains five interesting American real photo postcards of women campaigning for suffrage. The best of the lot, although not necessarily the rarest, pictures Jane Addams of Hull House fame in a touring car draped with a "Votes for Women" banner. Another pictures a group of Pennsylvania women, two of whom wear suffrage sashes, poised before the "Women's Liberty Bell." In 1915, these suffragettes trucked this replica of the Liberty Bell through every county in Pennsylvania in an effort to win the franchise that year. Although not as distinguished, the other postcards in this grouping are scarce. Two are unused, three have been posted. Each example measures 5.5" x 3.5" and all are in excellent condition.
