Farm Seed Advertising Post Card

This 1950's Northrup, King & Company post card was sent out by the local seed distributor to let the farmer know that their seed has arrived. The front has phenomenal graphics of a beautiful, young Negro girl, hair in pig tails, holding a large slice of watermelon with a few bites missing, and a smiling, satisfied look on her face. The front says "Satisfaction. Northrup, King & Co.'s Seeds. Minneapolis, Minn. & Berkley, Cal. Henry E. Henke, Jr. Beautiful colors, sharp details!
