Postcard: Los Angeles Pigeon Farm C: 1910
From above I have watched pigeons leave a ledge scattered, dip, regroup while climbing and returning to the ledge in an ordered flock. They are truly beautiful. But these thousands of pigeons were most likely destined to the dinner table. A picture of a pigeon farm near Elysian Park, Los Angeles is the subject of this 1910 postcard. The card was mailed and is post marked (thus the 1910) and an one cent stamp is affixed. It is a P.N.C. card, published in CA.
A personal note send to a friend in French Hospital San Francisco is written in pencil. The card is in good condition with slight wear to the corners and some edge. Crease lines are superficial.
