Old Photo Postcard,rppc,coeur D'alene Lake,town View,harrison,idaho,shops,movie:
Our reserve is the opening offer.We will be listing a few More Idaho RPPCs including Native American postcards. This is an especially interesting antique Real Photo Postcard. It is captioned "Harrison Lake Cour D'Alene, Harrison, Idaho". It is a nice view of Davis & Schuster providing Dry Goods, Shoes and Furnishings as well as the Harrison Harness Shop next door. They also repair shoes. The next building is the Theatre featuring a poster that is almost legible. A gent is walking up the street. There is a small hut or building undergoing construction just behind him. The photo is a lovely brown and has very good contrast. We believe it is postmarked 1913. We can see part of this date. It is in fair to good condition with bumped corner tips. The lower left corner tip has a good crease, the upper left a bend or very slight crease and the lower right has the same at its very tip. If you turn it to catch glare, you see some silvery sheen from the old photo printing process. Also with glare, you notice an area near the top edge in the middle that is not as shiny as the rest of the surface. This is scuffed and there is a greyish tone to this area. Near the lower right corner, just in front of the entrance of the store is a small and very light raised area about 1/2 inch in diameter. This is only visible with glare. Also with glare, there is a very slight vertical bend half way down the left edge. This travels about 1 1/2 inch into the photo, stopping before the Davis & Schuster sign. We prefer to overstate rather than omit. The psotcard does look nice and we do not mean to dissuade you. The back has some paper residue on it. This was obviously glued into an old photo album in its past history. The postcard is 5 1/2 inches by 3 1/2 inches. What a nice view of Harrison! Please email questions and we welcome info. We will combine purchases to save you money, but you must wait for our invoice to receive these savings. We pack with great care using heavy cardboard. Please email any questions you may have re item, payment and shipping. . The colored text does not appear on the actual postcard. The photo is a lovely brown and has very good contrast.
