BOY RIDES DONKEY : SMILING EAR TO EAR (RPPC 1900’s OR 1910’s)

This vintage real photo postcard provides a “feel good” impact on it’s viewers. A young well-dressed boy rides a tired looking donkey and he is wearing a smile that extends from ear to ear. He seems to be having the time of his life and his smile is infectious. A nice smile serves people well in life. Marilyn Monroe must have been in agreement about the importance of smiling when she said “A smile is the best makup any girl can wear”. Note that the donkey has a pennant hanging on his forehead. The pennant has “Illinois” printed on it. We can probably posit that this photo was taken in the “Land of Lincoln” (Illinois). This postcard has an “AZO” stamp box indicating that it was produced sometime between 1904 and 1918. The postcard is in very good condition (see scans).

HANDSOME YOUNG MAN : HIS UNIFORM AND MEDAL ARE MYSTERIES TO ME

A handsome young man poses for his portrait at an unknown studio. He is in uniform, but what kind of uniform is he wearing? Is he in the military? I don’t think so. There are no patches indicating rank; nor are there any other insignias revealing a military identity. However, there is the matter of the medal that he is wearing on the flap of his shirt pocket. It certainly looks military to me. Then again, he is wearing a bow tie which argues against his uniform being military issued. The clothing that he is wearing seems appropriate for someone who is spending time in a jungle or heavily wooded environment. His soft hat and the accessory that he is wearing above his shoes may be worn in such a setting. The tied wraps around the bottom of his pant’s legs are something that I have seen worn by bicyclists of this era. Its purpose was to keep one’s pant’s legs from becoming entangled in the spokes of the bicycle wheels and causing a nasty spill. Does the gentleman in this photograph use a bicycle in his work? If so, where is the bike? I have lots of questions, and unfortunately, no answers. I need some help on this one. Hopefully a Cabinet Card Gallery visitor will be able to provide more information about this photo. Guesses are welcome too. The AZO stamp box on the reverse of this postcard indicates that the card was published sometime between 1904 and 1918. This vintage photograph has excellent clarity and is in good condition (see scans).

AN ALLURING YOUNG WOMAN BECKONING FROM A LOVESEAT

This vintage provocative real photo postcard features a pretty young woman sitting on a loveseat, and beckoning for the attention of someone outside the range of the camera. She is offering that person a bouquet of dark flowers. The woman is dressed in a risque fashion. Her attire is not exactly everyday wear. One wonders if she is wearing a costume portraying a gypsy, or is perhaps, a flapper. The pictured woman is showing more bare skin than would normally be expected from a woman of this era. Note her unusual and interesting head covering. The AZO stamp box on this postcard reveals that it was produced sometime between 1918 and 1930. The postcard is in very good condition (see scans).
