The Gay Nineties

The Dapper Dans postcard
"....right out of the Gay Nineties...."  That's what the postcard says.  Of course they are referring to the 1890's, turn of the century, Main Street, USA.  They certainly don't mean the 1990's because this fabulous photo of the Dapper Dans in their striped vests and colorful pants was taken in the early 1970's.  This is the final chronologically numbered postcard in the early 0111 series before they skip ahead....right down the middle of Main Street, USA.  Sorry, I couldn't help myself.
