No postcards were sent thru the mail before 1906 so your
postcard has to be  1906 or after.

  Subject: shinola shoe shines

  This list has never let me down yet. The Old Brutus Historic Soc. recently purchased a post card with the title, Star Store Weedsport, NY. It shows the interior of a store that we never knew about. The only real clues are 1) a box of Shinola, 100 shines for a dime 2) Large boxes of Zig Zag and 3) a box of Black and White ???.
  Any clues where I can search for information to try to get a date of when the post card picture was taken?
