Nix Plumbing, Dallas Texas Postcard Friendship Friday

Advertising postcard....the store owners are posing in front of the vintage cars and trucks. The store was located on So. Beckley Street, Dallas in 1961, but is presently at a different location owned by a different family member. Thanks to Marie over at her blog for sponsoring PFF. http://www.cpaphilblog.com/


For sale on my ebay, just go to the link on left hand side.

Just leaving my own comment. I used the link for Maries blog which was set up a little different (well she is in NH) It said title so I put the title of the postcard when it should have been my name. Could not figure out how to fix it.

Happy PFF!

That's an interesting piece of history. And luckily someone saved it. How many people save their "junk mail?"

The stamp is certainly antique! PS. I tried to fix an error, couldn't so I just added my link again, esp since the first one didn't work!

Love the card and all those old trucks! I also like the "free balloons for all kids" on the back. Life seems so much simpler back then!

This is a time capsule. Will the advertising postcards of today be time capsules too?

People on PostCrossing often say they won't collect ad cards, but if they keep then long enough they could be a piece of history just like this.

Just look at the way those trucks and that car are facing the camera head on. Their owners must have been pretty proud of their rides.

Nix in German means 'nothing'! There is an expression 'in null comma nix' which means it will be ready in no time! I know that this is probably just the man's last name but it made me instantly think of that expression:) Happy PFF!

I receive postcard invitation twice and eversince I've been loving collecting postcards. I liked your postcard, I was planning to use the online Dallas Printing a friend recommended to me and i was having a hard time what to do with the design. He said Printing4u http://www.printing4u.com/pages/dallas-postcard-printing has great custom designs but I still want to do my first postcard my own way. Thanks to you article, I now have a bit of idea! Have a great day!
