Postcard

'National Series'

I have almost 30 post cards in the 'National Series' in my collection, but I have not yet discovered who published this series.  The card above appears to be one of the earliest.  It is one of two very similar cards.

-   Both were posted on December 30, 1904, to Miss Lizzie Oliver, Kelso.

-    Both have  been stamped in with an ink stamp on the back  "Liable to Letter Rate  E.H"

This is the other card:
