Tuck Postcards Database

Allan Braun, James Lewis Lowe, and Richard Moulton have created an online database for Raphael Tuck & Sons postcards. The lovely site is currently available to the public in a beta form.

Tuck was formed in the late 1800s, and their lobbying efforts helped change the regulations on postcards in the United States. They were active until the 1960s.

Here's a St. Patrick's Day card from Raphael Tuck & Sons:

Very beautiful postcard, but what's with the pig? Am I missing some known pig symbolism?

Thanks for the link!
