Let Me Take the Liberty

Let Me Take the Liberty 

"Let me take the Liberty to invite you to the Fifth Annual Ball of the Original Ulster Social Club, Incorporated, at Tammany Hall, 14th Street near Third Avenue, Wednesday evening, Jan. 23, '07. Music by Prof. D. J. Lent's Full Orchestra. Tickets, admit gent and ladies, incl. wardrobe, 50 cents. Two gold prizes will be drawn for. Martha. 815 . . . 1905, F. S. Backus"

Postcard addressed on the other side to Leon Closson, Whitehall, Wash. Co., New York, Box 554, and postmarked Brooklyn, N.Y., Jan. 16, 1907.

This 1907 invitation or advertisement was overprinted on a humorous postcard dated 1905. A quick search didn't turn up any information regarding the Ulster Social Club, but Wikipedia Commons has an image of Tammany Hall as it appeared in 1914.
