Curt Teich (1877-1974) was a printer who immigrated to the United States from Germany in 1896. Curt Teich & Company, opened in 1898 in Chicago, was the world's largest printer of view and advertising postcards. Teich is best known for its "Greetings From" postcards with their big letters, vivid colors, and bold style. Flickr user amhpics has archived nearly 2000 Teich linen postcards in his set Vintage Curt Teich linen postcards 1930s-1950s
You can also view hundreds of thousands of these postcards in person in Libertyville, Illinois. The Curt Teich Postcard Archives
, part of the Lake County Discovery Museum, is recognized throughout the world as the largest public collection of postcards and related materials.
amhpics also has several other smaller postcard sets
in his Flickr collection.
