What it is:

Real photo post card measuring 3.5 x 5.5 inches.


What I know about it:

As with the last post, the paper manufacturer’s markings (“Cyko” with hollow letters and the words “Place Postage Stamp Here” present) can be used to narrow the date range anywhere from 1906-1915 to 1904-1920s, depending on the online reference.  Otherwise no information.



I’m enjoying posting the pictures my friend Elise gave me last week, so here’s another.  At first glace, I assumed this was a pair of sisters, but I’m now more inclined to think the one on the left is a boy.  Pictures like this really show how doll-like children can be treated, and how much innocence they are presumed to have.  But unlike a lot of pictures of kids from that era, this one shows some spunk.  The girl in particular looks irrepressible.

  1. Totally a boy! In fact, this is an excellent example of the differences between boys’ and girls’ dresses. It’s begging to be included in a costume textbook.
