    Woman's Suffrage: Twelve English Pro and Anti-Suffrage Postcards. Published by the Birn Brothers of London, these scarce suffrage postcards are based on the popular children's rhyme "This is the House that Jack Built." The verse title is changed to read "This is the House that Man Built" with "house" referring to the British House of Parliament. The six postcards from series No. E. 19 mock the movement with images of suffragettes caught in demeaning situations. Those pictured in the six from series No. E. 23 support the movement by depicting suffragettes as intelligent and proper. Three of these postcards are unused, while the rest have been posted. Each example measures 3.5" x 5.5". All are in excellent condition with only minor toning and one small corner bend throughout the group.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
