Singer Sewing Machine 1920's Advertising Cards - American Song Birds

This is a set of advertising cards put out by The Singer Sewing Machine Company, dated 1926, '27, '28, '29. They are each 4 1/2" x 6" and printed on fairly thin stock. Each one has a lovely bird illustration by J. L. Ridgway, a well known science and ornithological artist. The back of the card has information about the particular bird and an ad for some aspect of the Singer Sewing Machine empire.
I have more of these to show you and remember to click twice to see all the details.


  1. Just lovely. The cardinal has special meaning for me and it was a small gift from heaven seeing it here today on your site. Thanks.

  2. How nice of you to say.
    (And I love your blog!)
