Vintage Faux Vintage

These are two cards I recently mailed to postcrossers. One is vintage and the other, faux vintage. The top card, from a series on Yosemite, is faux vintage. It is a 2000 reproduction of an actual vintage card. The card is yellowing because of the inexpensive cardstock and so it has the aura of vintage. It is a lovely card of the four major waterfalls in Yosemite: Bridal Veil, Yosemite, Vernal and Nevada. The card below is vintage, printed in Dearborn, Michigan, home of the Henry Ford Museum. Probably printed in the 1950's or 60's. It was reproduced in Curteichcolor.
