Description
This real photo postcard features an image of two men posing in front of a western scene. The man on the horse is wearing a light-colored long-sleeve shirt, pants and a hat. He has a cigar in his mouth and is holding a rifle in his hands. The other man is standing behind the horse and wears a jacket and hat that is cocked to the side. He is holding a bottle in his right hand and a rifle in the left. The scene behind them depicts tipis amidst trees and brush. Both men are looking at the camera. The letter [T] appears near the horse's rear on the bottom right of the image. The word [POST CARD] is printed at the top with the words [CORRESPONDENCE HERE] and [NAME AND ADDRESS HERE] separating the card into two sections. Text marks the spot for postage in the top right corner. The word [AZO] repeats forming a square with a triangle in each corner. The words [PLACE / STAMP / HERE] are printed inside the square. The number [898] is written on an orange sticker in the bottom left corner. There are no inscriptions, front or back.
