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.
