NATIVE AMERICAN INDIAN REAL PHOTO POST CARD possibly taken at the 1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition which is also known as the St. Louis World Fair. I have seen probably 25 of these images, each with a different native posing. This particular image is from an Osage's group of photographs, but he could be a member of any tribe and just a friend of the Osage family. The man is dressed white and is comfortable with having his photograph taken, he is smiling and resting his hands on the rail. The best part is what is written on the back: "Don't let no one see this what ever you do. Please." It is the "please" that makes me laugh. There is a name of the photographer printed on the back.
CONDITION: Card is in good condition with normal light vintage bends to the corners. Image is clean and crisp. The worst part is that for some reason someone has trimmed the card.
CIRCA: AZO, triangles up, 1904-1918
