Description

Here we have a fantastic pair of portraits on antique real photo post cards.
One is a generic young man. The other is a similar-looking young businessman
sitting in a state-of-the-art office. A candle stick phone is visible, as is a
Burroughs Model 9 adding machine which dates to 1912-1914.

The card is a Kruxo dated to 1910-1912 (“known”), but it has to be a couple of
years later, still pre-WWI.

The other one was taken at the Hilton Studios in Newark, NJ. This one is Azo
diamond which dates a little earlier, at 1907 to 1909, the Edwardian era.

Size: just short of 3 1/2" x 5 1/2", divided back.

Condition: fair to good. Stained corners. Please look over the photos for more
details about what you will receive. This lot is priced accordingly and sold
as-is.

What a great pair of antique post cards to collect and display, use as a prop
or repurpose!
