A YOUNG COUPLE AND THEIR HORSE AND BUGGY IN A RURAL SETTING

The message on this vintage real photo postcard is as follows: “Edd & Susan, Here is a picture. looks like us but not good work at all. How are you? We are all well. My Dishes haven’t come yet… Bird”. I added the punctuation since “Bird” didn’t seem to have the time or interest. This photograph features a young man and woman sitting in their horse drawn buggy in front of a rural house and landscape. The previous owner of this image believed that that the couple are dressed in their wedding clothes. I certainly can not confirm that, but the pair are certainly dressed in their nicest clothing. “Bird”, perhaps short for “Birdie”, is not very pleased with this photograph. Personally, I believe the photographer did an excellent job in capturing this couple, their horse and buggy, and their homestead. The stamp box on the reverse of this RPPC indicates that it was produced on Cyko paper sometime between 1904 and the 1920’s.

AN ADORABLE YOUNG CHILD IN WOOL COAT AND STOCKING CAP

This vintage real photo postcard features a young child ready for winter. The child is wearing a long wool coat and a stocking cap and is standing on a wicker chair. This coat may have belonged to an older sibling because it clearly does not fit the child in the photograph. The coat hangs very low but the real give-away is that the coat’s sleeves hang well below the child’s hands. The unused “fashion statement” postcard has a “Cyko” stamp box indicating that it dates sometime between 1904 and the 1920’s.
