black-man

This vintage real photo postcard features a well dressed African American man. He is wearing a ring and a nice hat. The reverse of the postcard has an inscription which includes his name as well as his wife's name. The gentleman's name is John Anderson and he inscribed the card to his wife, Inez Anderson. He humorously wrote that she knew that he was the "pretty man" in the photo. The postcard has an AZO stamp box which indicates that it was produced between 1904 and 1918. The lower portion of the postcard has eight tack holes which indicates that the postcard may have traveled a bit and been tacked to a number of walls. There is also residue evidence that the postcard once resided in a photo album.
