Rare mechanical  opera postcard         1905
Autographed by Anna von  Mildenburg
Left: The earliest postmarked opera postcard I've ever seen. This postcard is dated 1888. The writer explains how he was able to get opera tickets thanks to "Mr. Tode," Wagner's son-in-law. The "Mr. Tode" is actually Henry Thode who was married to Wagner's daughter, Daniela.
