SAMUEL W. YOUNG, OF NEW YORK, N. Y.

MAILING-CARD.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Feb.. 6, 191W..

Application led May 13, 1914. Serial No. 838,229.

To all whom z' may concern.'

Be it known that I, SAMUEL W7. YOUNG, a citizen of the United States, residing at New York, in the county and State of New York, have made a certain new and useful Invention in lvlailing-Cards, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to mailing cards.-

The object of the invention is to provide a inailiilg card having the picture of a vehicle printed or embossed thereon with means for disclosing a. photograph through the window of the 'vehicle Other objects of the invention will appear more fully hereinafter.

The invention consists substantially in the construction, combination, location and relative arrangement of parts all as will be more fully hereinafter set forth, as shown in the accompanying drawing and finally pointed out in the appended claim.

Referring to the accompanying drawngf- Figure 1 is a view in perspective of a mailing card showing the address side.

Fig. 2 is a similar view showing the two flaps open and one arrangement embraced within my invention for securing a photograph in proper place to be displayed.

Fig. 3 is a view showing the side of the card flap containing the picture of the vehicle and disclosing a photograph through the window of the vehicle.

Fig. 4 is a section on the line 4, 4, Fig. 3.

Fig. 5 is a view in perspective, partly broken out showing a folded card, and a modified arrangement for securing in place the photograph to be displayed.

Fig. 6 is a section showing another modified arrangement.

The same part is designated by the same reference numeral wherever it occurs throughout the several views.

In accordance with my invention I propose to employ a mailing card having the usual flaps 7, 8, hinged or connected together along adjacent edges so as to be foldable upon each other, one of the flaps, as 7, designed to be used on one side for the address and stamp, in the usual way, and the other flap S, having on its outer surface the picture or outlines of a vehicle, printed, im-

pressed or embossed thereon, as shown in Fig. 3. The body of the card or that portion of the Hap thereof which has the picture of the vehicle is cut out at the space occupied by the vehicle windows, or other desired openings, as indicated at 3, and over these openings I secure a sheet of transparent material, such, for instance, as isinglass, indicated at 9, so as to disclose therethrough a photograph or other picture, indicated at 10, carried between the flaps 7, 8, of the card, and suitably positioned with reference to the window or other opening of the ve-V hicle picture. The photograph 10 may be simply pasted or otherwise secured to the flap 7 on the reverse side thereof from that carrying the address, as shown in Figs. and 4, and located opposite a window or other opening in the vehicle picture, or said photograph may be carried in a pocket 11, secured on the reverse side of the card flap on which the vehicle picture is made, as indicated at 11, Fig. 5, or it may be carried in a pocket 12, mounted upon the inside surface of flap 7, as shown in Fig. 6. In this case, of course, and as clearly indicated, the wall of the pocket 12 which is presented toward the opening 13 in flap 8, must also be cut out so as to display the photograph IO, therethrough. In all cases, however, I propose to so locate the photograph 10, that when the two flaps of the card are folded together, said photograph is disclosed through the cut out opening 13, and since this cut out opening corresponds to a window doorway or the like of the pictured vehicle, the card gives the beholder the impression of the picture of an individual occupying the interior of the vehicle. The provision of the transparent material 9 not only protects the photograph but enhances the impression that the photograph is a person occupying the interior of the vehicle as seen through a glass window or other opening.

In practice the picture of the vehicle may be printed upon the card Hap 8, but ay more handsome and realistic effect is produced by embossing the vehicle picture upon said flap, as indicated at 14, Fig. 4. My invention, however, in its broadest scope, is not to be limited or restricted in this respect.

While I have shown my invention as applied to the picture of an automobile it is to be understood that I do not limit myself in this respect, as the principles of my invention are equally well adapted to the pictures of other vehicles, such as carriages, wagons, buses, street or other cars, boats, or the like, or to houses, tents or other inclosures.

Having now set forth the objects and IOO IIO

nature of my invention and a construction embodying the principles thereof, what I claim as new and useful, and of my own invention, and desire to secure by Letters Patent is,-

A postal card consisting of a single piece of material having a flap adapted to be folded back onto the card, said {iap portion having a picture or outline of a vehicle upon its outer portion and a cut out portion in said flap to form the Window of said vehicle, a transparent sheet applied over said cut out portion, and a retaining pocket located on the back of said card adapted to receive a photograph in such position as to l disclose said photograph through said cut out portion and said transparent sheet Vin said flap.

In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand in the presence of the subscribing 20 Witnesses, on this v(th day of May A. D. 1911i.
