Old U.S. postcard

Some fascinating details here. I like sitting guy's vest and leather watch Albert. Snap buttons were invented in 1885. I really hope that's a bandanna he's wearing, not a turkeyneck sweater.

Real photo postcard, no date, from the 'white border' (1915-1930) period.


  1. Do you have theexact date of this card… I can't believe that the canoe mocs with crepe sole are so old… great info !!!!! Thanks Mose !!!!

  2. Send you a hi-res.scan. Enjoy.
    Edit: added dating info to my post.

  3. i've got mail order catalogs from 1917 with 3 different types of canoe mocs in Canada you can still get the real deal.
