The sister of Lillian F. Pease (1855-1933), Mary Elizabeth Sandford, started the Sandford Card Company in Dansville, New York in 1907. Soon afterward, Lillian started her own card company in Buffalo. The company existed until the 1930s when Lillian died. Lillian was very involved in the Temperance Movement and went to Ireland to take part in the Women's Christian Temperance Union convention there. Mementoes of this trip are in the Sandford Card Company Collection.
Greeting cards designed and created by the L.F. Pease Card Company of Buffalo, New York, some in the form of postcards. Most cards have stock numbers, but only a very few have dates on them. Also included are copyright applications for some of the cards.
