Series of 18 bird postcards in color Author: Chester A. Reed Copyright: Chas. K. Reed, 1909

In 1909, Charles published a series of 18 postcards produced by Chester A. Reed. They featured oil drawings. All original drawings are still owned by the Reed family.

I used pictures of the originals in this Photo Gallery, except for 6 drawings: Goldfinch. Hummingbird, Scarlet Tanager, Blue Jay, Blackburnian Wabler and Baltimore Oriole. I used postcards for this slideshow.




The originals are on display in the Reed family home in a frame similar to the one below.

You can consult the slideshow of the presentation of 18 color postcards.
