YOUNG GIRL RIDES A STUDIO DONKEY WHILE SMILING MOM PROVIDES SUPPORT

This vintage real photo postcard features a young girl riding a donkey. The child does not seem particularly comfortable. Mom is standing close-by, and she offers a pretty smile for the photographer. I have labeled the beast of burden seen in this photo, a donkey, but I am aware that the animal may be a burro or mule. In addition, I am also cognizant of the fact that the donkey, or whatever it is, may be stuffed. The backdrop reveals that the photograph was taken in a photographer’s studio. I would imagine that most photographers would not be receptive about having a live donkey inside their studio. This photo postcard is of German origin and an inscription on the reverse of the card reveals that the photograph was taken in 1937. This vintage scallop edged postcard is in very good condition (see scans).

A YOUNG BOY AND GIRL ATOP A DONKEY

This vintage real photo postcard features a young boy and girl riding a donkey. Pardon my lack of equine knowledge; perhaps the donkey is actually a mule or burro. Both children are smiling and apparently having a good time. It is likely that the pair are siblings. The sister is riding side-saddle. I believe the donkey is actually a late donkey. It was not unusual to have subjects pose with a taxidermied animal for their studio photograph. The AZO stamp box on the reverse of this postcard indicates that it was published between 1910 and 1930. This vintage postcard is in very good condition (see scans).
