 Just what is a rebus anyhow?  It is a puzzling note or short message that uses 

pictures with numbers, letters and  as few words as possible. Humor and

 puns are common elements in a rebus, but some have serious messages.
  To read it, one must first “solve the puzzle!”  

  


Come 2 C
~ a 1914 postcard  picturing 11 different vegetables in the message
~a fancy antique postcard with just 4 words and two images for the message
~girl’s and boy’s names from 1916 in rebus form .

Antique rebus holiday cards, vintage Valentine rebus cards, Victorian dating cards, 
post cards from 1905,  famous Rebus Puzzles and contemporary rebus puzzles
 are displayed and are begging to be solved.
