1907 Cornell Leather Postcard - Cornell Yell

Leather postcards were first made in 1903. They were a novelty that appealed to tourists. Often they are found with holes punched along the edges.  When stitched
together, they could be used as a pillow cover or wall hanging. The holes along the edge could also be used to attach fringe. The cards were made of deer hide and the
pictures burned in. The U.S. post office banned leather postcards in 1907 because they jammed postage-canceling machines (although postcards with postmarks after
1907 can be found). Leather cards continued to be made as souvenirs until about 1910.
