c1910 real photo group studio portrait postcard featuring six “mature” women of varying age and each wearing a different style of turn-of-the-century fashion. These women do not appear to be sisters and there too is much difference in ages to be former classmates – but they could be elementary school teachers, “suffragettes” or members of a local church organization. The younger woman in the center of the second row is sporting a particularly unusual collar - there must be a story here somewhere!!

Sepia-toned chloride gelatin print on AZO photo paper with a stamp box design used between 1904 and 1918. Unused divided back real photo postcard in excellent condition for its age.

PHOTO NOTE: Gelatin Prints were chloride papers made with very small particles of silver suspended in a gelatin emulsion. They tend to be vulnerable to contamination and can easily deteriorate. They were much faster than collodion based papers and were able to be exposed indoors under gaslight lamps (gaslight paper), but they remained slow enough to be used only in contact printing. Its ease of use made it the most popular paper on the market for real photo postcards. They were manufactured with postcard backs.

CONDITION NOTE: VINTAGE BUT UNUSED. LOOK CAREFULLY AT PHOTOS. A slightly glossy real photo postcard, unused and with an image in excellent condition for its age. No creases or tears. Corners and edges are slightly damaged. Back is clean, except for some age discoloration, heavier along the edges. ANY FLAWS ARE VISIBLE IN THE PHOTOS.
