LA Shrine convention card found on EBay

1907 Shriner convention postcard
This postcard now listed on EBay is one of the many souvenirs from the Shriners' 1907 national convention, which was held in Los Angeles. This gathering also generated pins, fans, postcards, plates, cups, goblets and items too numerous to mention, as the auctioneers used to say.

Shriner pin Although the Shriners apparently had a grand time in Los Angeles, the convention ended tragically when nearly 30 of them died in a horrible train wreck on the way home.
