Found on EBay – Williams and Walker

George Walker I’ve been searching for items of Bert Williams and George Walker on EBay since I wrote about the vaudeville team in 2008. Sheet music turns up somewhat often but this is the first time I’ve seen souvenir postcards for sale. According to the vendor, the six Williams and Walker postcards being sold individually are part of an album collected by an African American serviceman – evidently a Buffalo soldier – about the time of the Mexican Revolution.  Bidding on this postcard starts at $8.

    One nit-picking caveat on your article: Bert Williams was neither African nor American, he was born in the British West Indies.
