PHOTO NOTE: The photo/ flash distorts the clarity of the images and sometimes the intensity of the colors. Hand-painted postcards do not photograph well. The muted "grainy" look is a distortion. The colors are more vivid and the clarity greater when viewed in person. Stains and other minute defects are exaggerated by the scanning process, and many are much less noticeable when viewed in person.
CONDITION: PLEASE EXAMINE PHOTOS CAREFULLY. Standard-sized postcard in excellent condition for it age. Colors are bright and images very clear. NO creases or folds, and only light margin or corner wear. Light tan cast and smudge marks on the off-white background may be age discoloration. Light tan cast may be age discoloration. Slightly darker spot stains along the lower margin on the front, but do not involve the central image, and are not distracting in person. ALL FLAWS ARE OBVIOUS IN THE PHOTOS.
