THE ROBERTS BROTHERS RIDE INTO TOWN BRINGING THEIR SPECIAL BRAND OF LAWLESSNESS

Look who’s riding into town! Its the Roberts brothers. Someone better go get the sheriff. George and Paul Roberts are spoken about in the same conversations that occur about such criminal brothers as Jesse and Frank James, and Jim, Cole, John, and Bob Younger. This vintage real photo postcard featuring the Roberts brothers, shows them with their “game face” on. They may be small in stature but they were scary dudes. Enough with the horse s**t. This real photo postcard is actually quite interesting. These boys look comfortable on their horses. The kids are on large horses, not small ponies reserved for inexperienced child riders.They appear to know what they are doing. One of the boys has a whip. No cowboy hats for these guys. One is wearing a wide brim bowler while the other is sporting a cap. Note the dirt streets. The town may actually be a frontier town in the “old west”. Also take notice of the boy standing on the sidewalk. He seems truly interested in the horseback riders, or perhaps, the photographer. The young bystander is wearing knickers. The AZO stamp box on this postcard reveals that it was likely published sometime between 1904 and 1918. The cameraman was a studio photographer who was willing to take difficult photographs in the outdoors. This vintage real photo postcard is in very good condition (see scans).

TWO YOUNG MEN AND THE HISTORY OF RADIO (A LYRA RADIO AND AN EXIDE BATTERY)

old radio

old radio 1

This vintage photograph is a terrific relic of radio history. Two young men flank an old radio which is sitting on a small table. Each man has a hand atop the radio. Both men are holding cigarettes. The radio was manufactured by Lyra, a company located in Berlin, Germany. The receiving set must have been highly valued by it’s owners. The radio was powered by the Exide battery sitting on the lower shelf of the table. Compare this battery to the tiny batteries of today. The men are wearing knickers and high boots. This vintage photograph measures about 3 1/4″ x 5″ and is in very good condition (see scans).  (SOLD)
