What’s Up With These Suggestive Postcards From White Cloud?
A rabbit hole I dove down the other day led me to a series of risque postcards from the Newaygo County town of White Cloud. Now I know what they do to get through a hard winter.
When searching through old school postcards I came across one of a guy who used to sell candy and snacks from a goat cart outside of the railroad terminal in White Cloud.
Interested, I did a deep dive and found this White Cloud postcard page on eBay, which featured eight postcards of risque situations involving gawking, leering, and generally objectifying women, all with the caption of being from "White Cloud, Michigan".
While these postcards were fairly common in novelty shops in the late '50s and early '60s, I'm not sure how they came to be associated with White Cloud. I'm thinking they were probably personalized for such a shop there.
Let's take a look:
