An inventive and unique hand crafted Holiday Seasons Greeting Card from the F. Burtis Clayton Company who we believe were a commercial airbrush art studio. The cover features a streamlined airbrushed painting of a modernist silhouetted cityscape with planes, trains, and automobiles ushering in the machine age. Nicely framed, this opens to reveal text and New Year's wishes as would a more typical holiday card.

Interior shows a logo of an air brush machine and the text on the adjoining page reads "So many things in this fast moving age make it difficult to keep pace with an ever changing world... But with sincere expression of goodwill enduring through all ages. We repeat a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year."
