Greetings From New York City
Perhaps one of my most favorite vintage cards I’ve picked up to date. I always love blue and orange coloration. Not to mention this font style is super cool.

Vintage postcard of the North Hollywood home of Archie Hagenbeck, world famous lion tamer with both the Sells-Floto Circus and the Dupar Bros. Circus.
Hagenbeck would go on to star in such circus horror films as: Big Top Vampires Go Hog-Wild (1938); Werewolf on the Flying Trapeze (1941); and Flea Circus 2: Full Sequence (1946), with Baby Gruenwald as P.T. Barnum.
Though Hagenbeck loved working with lions, tigers and other big cats, he
allowed only rental bears to freely
prowl the grounds of his North Hollywood estate, his way of keeping separate his
work life from home life.
FUN FACT: Count Janos, Archie Hagenbeck’s favorite Carpathian brown bear, had to be put to sleep after being gored by next door neighbor Bob Hope’s African bush elephant, Nipsey.
