Photo postcard.

"The Dark Town Fire Brigade" originated as a set of lithographs in the USA and showed black men as inept and comedic firemen. Very non-PC.

This card shows a slapstick performance possibly based on a subsequent stage show from the USA. It comes from a large private collection of cards centred around the Woburn Sands and Aspley Guise area of Bedfordshire and is likely to be part of the village show at Aspley Guise pre-World War 1.


Condition: Good+. Some surface marks. Please see photos.

Free postage on all additional purchases paid for in a single transaction. Please add items to your shopping basket (when discounts should be automatically applied at checkout) or wait for me to send an invoice before making payment. This applies to both UK and overseas buyers.

Card will be sent in protective sleeve with additional card stiffener and board-backed envelope.
