PRIZED COW AND FIVE ADULTS POSE IN FRONT OF SMALL FARM HOUSE

The star of the cast of six characters seen in this vintage real photo postcard, is a cow. This is not an ordinary cow. Although this is not a photograph of Elsie the Cow, or Mrs. O’Leary’s Cow; the cow seen in this image is a prize winning cow. Standing behind the cow are three well dressed men and two women. Judging by an abundance of smiles, all five people seem pretty happy. Behind the row of people is a small house, possibly a farm house. Speculating about the story behind this picture, I formulate the following hypothesis. I believe that our bovine friend has just won a prize for being superior to other cows, one way or another. The gentleman seen by the champion cow’s head, appears to be wearing a flower and an award ribbon by his lapel. When I looked at a close-up view of this cow, I noticed that it had horns. I began to think that this cow is actually a bull. However, some quick research revealed that female cows are born with horns. I was udderly surprised to learn this fact. This postcard was published by Cyko. The stamp box indicates that it dates to the time period between 1904 and 1920. This postcard is in very good condition (see scans).

A WOMAN AND TWO COWS POSE FOR THEIR PORTRAIT IN A PASTURE

This vintage real photo postcard features a stout woman posing with two cows. The woman is wearing a wide smile. One might say that she is in a state of udder delight. This bovine aficionado seems a bit young to have gone to pasture. A postcard like this one would likely fall in the “rare” category. Over the many years I have collected real photo postcards, I have yet to see one like it.
