    Woman's Suffrage: Oversized Virginia Suffrage and Four Propaganda Postcards. This oversized postcard features a woman chained to three other people with the legend "Linked Together by Law." The reverse points out that "In Virginia all citizens are allowed to vote except criminals, idiots, insane people, and women and children." There are several bends in this card, but its extreme rarity transcends condition. It measures 7" x 5.5". The other four cards are also very desirable, not only for their graphics, but also because at least three and possibly all four were issued by suffrage organizations and not by commercial publishers. The policeman and the ballot box postcard continues the theme of the oversized card, pointing out who can vote and who cannot. A hobo is casting a ballot, but a respectable woman is turned away. Another postcard shows an alcoholic with the ability to vote, but the hand that rocks the cradle cannot. Several of these images have appeared on the covers of suffrage journals. One of the smaller postcards is unused, while the remaining three have been posted. All measure 5.5" x 3.5" and are in excellent condition.
