Item description

We are happy to offer for your consideration this White border halftone postcard view of the Wittenberg in the Catskill Mountains of New York which was published by A. Biren of Brooklyn, NY and printed by Miller Art Co. of Brooklyn, NY in 1925 and postmarked 1926. A. Biren was in business from 1912 until 1948 and they published black white collotype views of New York City and Long Island. They later published linens of New York and many generic cards. Miller Art Co. was in business from 1922 until 1941 and they published view-cards of the Northeast in tinted halftone. Many of their cards suffer from very crude retouch work. They also printed cards for other New York postcard publishers and this card is such an example. The Catskills have long been a favorite summertime destination for New Yorkers to escape the heat of the City and enjoy some time in the abundant foliage of Nature's beauty. The Front of this card features a view of the rock face known as the Wittenberg, which has long been a favorite place for climbers to scramble up the rocky outcrop. A group of climbers is visible at the top enjoying the view after their hard climb. At the top, in the white border is the caption, " "Most up" Climbing the Wittenberg, Catskill Mountains, N.Y.". in the view at the lower left is the Miller Art ware number, "406561". The back is a divided back postcard with "made in the USA" in the center of the division. The left margin bears the Biren info. At the bottom of the division is the Miller Art logo. This card is in excellent condition with slight bumping in two corners. There is no yellowing at all. the card has been posted in the mail and postmarked Jul 23 1926. This card will be a nice addition to your collection of views of Mountains, Cliffs, mountain climbers, views of the Catskills, New York state and Biren products as well as Miller Art products made for other publishers.
