This postcard shows a calendar for November 1911. It is part of a monthly calendar series used for advertising. The name of the advertiser, Goldberg Bowen & Co., appears at the bottom of the front and with the advertising message on the back that lists items they offered for the “month of good dinners.”
The front of the postcard tells about the month of November and its name:
This was the ninth month in the old Roman calendar and was taken from the Latin word Novem, meaning nine. In this month the Romans held a feast in honor of the goddess Fides, representing fidelity or faith.
