Here’s a really cool semi-candid Real Photo Postcard showing railroad workers at work, and a gentleman posed for the camera in the foreground, leaning against the train. It looks like they are at a rail stop, having just arrived or maybe getting ready to head out. Per the excellent Playles.com website, that we go to often for dates on RPPCs, the estimated time frame for this postcard would be 1907 – 1917. It has a Velox stamp box showing diamonds in each corner and “Place Stamp Here” in the center.
Divided back, unused Real Photo Postcard. Velox stamp box. Circa 1907 – 1917.
