This vintage undivided back real photo postcard features a sweet little boy riding a handcar. The message on the reverse of the card reveals that the boys name is Robert and the card was mailed to his grandparents in Alliance, Ohio. The message is written by the boy’s parents in wording as if the boy himself wrote the card. Robert tells his grandparents that he has much fun on the handcar and that he wishes that they could see how fast he can ride. The message also reveals that the postcard was written in 1906 and that Robert and his family resided in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  Typically, a hand car is a railroad car that is powered by it’s passengers. They were used by the railroads as well as in mines. (SOLD)
