Most Real Photo Postcards, abbreviated RPPC, have information on their backs to help in identifying the manufacturer of the photographic paper that was used by the postcard publisher.
If you can identify the paper manufacturer, you can approximate the age of the old postcard.
(You can see an earlier photo of great-grandpa bill, from his earlier days working in a lumber camp in the woods).
Through old family photos, I’m also fairly sure that the family lived at this time in an area of Bemidji known as “Mill Park”.
We talk about the success we have selling weird, unique vintage items because people are often buying “nostalgia”.
(See A Family Photo Jackpot for the story of my gradually scanning/preserving a large collection of old photos). In my scan, you can see the word “AZO” just below the stamp.
There is some confusion on what Real Photo Postcards (RPPC) are, and how to differentiate from a printed postcard.
Real Photo Postcards are photographs that are reproduced by actually developing them onto photographic paper the size and weight of Postcards, with a Postcard back.
There are many Postcards that reproduce photos by various printing methods that are NOT "real photos"..same methods used when reproducing photos in magazines and newspapers.
The best way to tell the difference is to look at the Postcard with a magnifying glass.
