Thanks for the compliments. I don't want to pass myself off as an expert on Chicago, though. I am more an expert on Chicago postcards, and believe me, there is a difference.
I have been collecting about 10 years. Add to that being in computers long enough for my first computer to have been an Atari, and it was natural that I would probably have a website.
I collect lots of things, but Chicago postcards are the smallest items and the biggest collection!
I have never seen a postcard of Mike Fish Restaurant, but that doesnt mean there isn't one. I collect only cards of businesses and buildings pre-1950, so if it is newer than that I won't have it.
All my cards are on my website, so if you don't see it there, I don't have it yet.
Many of my restaurant cards do have more info on the back, including owners, managers, etc., so if you have any questions about a card you see on my site, feel free to ask if there is more info available.
I'm not sure how often I will be on this site, so the best way to reach me is by email - firstname.lastname@example.org
. I will try to check in once a week or so.
