This is a fantastic vintage real photo postcard. I am not spouting hyperbole. I have seen many postcards featuring rabbits, but usually the rabbits are dead. The bunnies had met their demise from the guns of hunters. Typically the rabbits are strung on a line and joined by several of their furry colleagues. This rare postcard features three live rabbits posing on a fabric covered table. What is the story behind this photograph? Are these bunnies show bunnies waiting to be judged? Are they for sale to be someone’s pet, or worse yet, someone’s dinner? The gentleman standing behind the rabbits is well dressed. He looks sharp in his three piece suit, high collared shirt, and large cap. This studio photo is in excellent condition (see scans).          SOLD

  1. Magnificent photo and superb description. Not surprised it sold at once. As for “bunnies” and “rabbits” I have to be careful to refer to live ones as bunnies and the canned stuff Adele loves as rabbit. We haven’t seen any rab–bunnies–since the neighbors’ Cat Colony materialized a few years ago, except for a bit of fur that might have lined a nest in the woods, and a live 2-pounder that Adele flushed from the yard fringe but got away.

    • I agree. This is a very special photograph and I was ambivalent about parting with it. I see a lot of rabbits in my yard. They really are cute furry animals. It was nice to see live rabbits in this image rather than the typical hunter and game photo postcards.
