I have a collection of postcards I was recently given. A number of these have a large border along the right side. What type of cards have this feature? Does it indicate a "Real Photo Postcard"?

Hi, Yes this is an example of a "real photo" postcard. usually the printer is named somewhere, but in this case, I don't see one. It appears to be a "challenge" between a horse and chariot, and a Modern automobile" in the year 1911.

The background looks like a state fair? Where is "Marysville" is it in your state? Here in MI we do have a "Marysville, just south and east of Port Huron MI. It's possible that's the location, as we are the "motor city" and this was an attempt to promote the auto over the horse and carriage way of travel?

Your postcard is an example a vintage card when the post office allowed senders to print on the photo side of the card, hence the blank space.  Then it was changed so  your message was allowed only on the back.


I have a number of postcards and am hoping someone can help me to determine value of them, if any. I have one that shows King George and Queen Mary standing alongside the Matron of Hospital and the O.C. with the words Lady Astor's Estate in brackets. Some show scenes from Singapore with writing on the reverse describing each scene. My mother had a pen pal in 1939 and these cards are from him signed and dated. I have a few military cards that show scenes from Petawawa Camp in Ontario. Thanks.
