  1. Thank you Kihm — love the graphics and now I’ve discovered your “Faithful Readers” site. You just elbowed out “The Last Days of Disco, with Cocktails” from my weekend reading list. 😉

  3. Thank you so much for a wonderful blog. I hope you don’t mind if I repost some of the Cheese PostCards on my Tumblr account. I will certainly post the link to your blog as well. Of course, I will await your okay before doing so.

  4. Hi Kihm, I met your blog by chance searching a quite unknown picture by Ansel Adams.
    I just saw the small title of the blog ‘Bits of wisdom, images, postcards, stuff I feel the need to share’ I liked so much. It is what I would like to do. I’m Italian (Milan in Lumbardy) but with a strong passion and love for much American stuff… From geology to history literature etc. I would also like to create something to be shared this way.
    Sorry if I write this. Just to say I will read yr blog bits 🙂

  5. Thanks for returning my message. I love all the pics. I have never use blog, so I don’t know anything about it!! I took pics of my post card but I do t see anywhere on her I can attach it!! It’s really nice and I just loved it when I first got it. Don’t even know how many years I’ve had it!!

  6. I just stumbled across your site, reading https://kihm2.wordpress.com/category/polo/page/4/
    years after it was written.
    Thoroughly enjoyable with minutia about the sport of polo.
    I am a player, a fan, and a writer on the subject.
    See https://maltesecatpolo.wordpress.com/
    as well as a writer of novels that have polo in the stories.


    Pleasant surprise finding your page. Hope you continue to write on this subject, with or without Alex’s help.

  7. Hi, very interesting site. Can you tell me the year the photograph of Brakmeier Bros. was published? I’m writing a short article about the company for a non-profit numismatic magazine, and would like to use it.


    • The original photo is from the Caufield & Shook Collection of photographs at the University of Louisville, but I cannot find this particular stamp in the digital collection. The Brakmeier Bros. bowling team is shown, photographed in 1928, so I would guess that’s the approximate date for this photo.
