G is for Green Giant

Norman Rockwell's style is fairly easily recognisable, though I'll admit to having been confused once or twice.  He was an American artist who created covers for The Saturday Evening Post from 1916, and went on to depict small town life after he moved to Vermont.

This piece, dated 1939, has the title "Who's Having More Fun?" and was an illustration for an advertisement for Green Giant canned corn.

Strangely, it was sent to me from Japan.


  1. Your collection is certainly very varied and from all sort of sources it seems. :)

  2. Love Norman Rockwell. Thanks for the G. I'm with Writing Wrangler and Warriors the A 2 Z challenge. Cher'ley


  3. Love Rockwell. And Hummel figurines. And I have been fooled by knock offs of both.

  4. Norman Rockwell--always so comforting! Makes me wonder if the sender was familiar with the artist...? Interesting!

  5. I found you through the A to Z challenge. You seem to have a huge collection of postcards! Which means you surely have a lot of traveling friends.

  6. I really like it, and it makes me want to eat some good old corn on the cob, right now!

  7. This is funny especially that it came from Japan but what a great card! Tells everything just on that one picture

  8. Hi Shiela! I am reading this around lunch time and my stomach grumbles for a steamed cob of corn now! Nice card :D

  9. I loved all the Jolly Green Giant commercials...not that they ever enticed children to eat more vegetables. I have always loved vegetablles, though.

    Off again to India May 5th, this time I plan a five month stay.


Welcome to my postcard collection! I love hearing what you think of the cards - but spam WILL be deleted.
