These architectural cards were some of the most commonly given and are a valuable remainder of the material lives that Americans at the turn of the century aspired to.  Note the art nouveau influenced gate.  (Source: Vintage American Postcard, authors personal collection.)

Happy Holidays!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New year to all of Kung Fu Tea’s readers.  Thanks so much for your support and feedback over the last year.  I think that my friend Bernard, the Kung Fu Elf, left one or two things under the tree for me.  Hopefully I will be able to keep your updated with what I find in the comments.  Feel free to do the same.  Show us any gear you got or just send a holiday shout-out.

We have a number of new posts and a few exciting special features coming up in the next few months.  We will also be returning to our normal posting schedule after January 1st, but I might have one or two short articles to go up before then, so check back often.
