Photo Number 1818

This is a Real Photo Postcard from the antique shop in Detroit Lakes Minnesota.

Old couple DL Cyko Postcard

This is a Cyko Postcard they were used from 1904 to the 1920s.

Usually you don’t see men in sweaters…I wonder what the shamrock shape says on his sweater?  The lady looks like she is all set to go someplace.

Thanks for stopping by.

  2. I think the photograpers mark says Seattle. There was an Expo there in1909. Perhaps the shamrock is a visitor or exhibitor pass.

  3. Do you know whow the people are or their history? That type of clothing is usually a sign of wealth. Back then, quakers, were wealthy. And, if it is a rppc, they had money because of how much it cost compared to reprinted photos onto a postcard
