Purchase a reproduction of this item on


A linen postcard promoting travel to the Pine Tree State from the 1930s, as Maine became an increasingly popular tourist destination.

The Tichnor Brothers printing company published this type of postcard circa 1938 as part of their Maine series. These, and other postcards, by the Tichnor Brothers Company are officially known as the Tichnor Gloss Series because the photographs were notoriously retouched on such a level that does not allow the postcards to be classified as photographs or paintings. The caption reads, "Greetings from the Pine Tree State."
