N224 Kinney/Sweet Caporal Military Uniforms

I now own four pieces of cardboard that were created before the turn of the 20th Century.  Completely and utterly too cool.

These N224 Kinney/Sweet Caporal Military Uniforms cards are amazing considering they were created around 1890.

As the backs of all the cards are exactly the same, I'll just show one scan.

I will definitely be looking to add more of these beauties whenever the price is right.

The color on that first one is just amazing.

These are so much more interesting than anything that has come out in the last 5 years for me. That last uniform has what looks to be a very early art deco design in the background. I wonder if this card started the whole movement?

I like the top one with the funky yellow background.

Very nice. Always a sucker for old military uniforms.
