Please refer to our stock # BAFolder when inquiring.

Measuring approximately 4.5 x 6.5 inches, this circa early 1900 souvenir postcard folder is entitled, "Souvenir Folder, Greetings From the Sunny South". There is no publisher evident nor copyright date although photos suggest a turn-of-the-century time line.

The folder has been mailed but the postmark date is obscured with the exception of "19...". Some edge wear evident at folder corners as well as significant wear to folder seam although the seam remains intact. No wear to interior postcards. While some photos may appear a bit blurry, this is a function of photography and not condition. All postcards are crisp and clear!

The Real Photo postcard folder features 22 full color scenes of industry common in the South during this period: cotton picking and production, tapping pine trees for turpentine production, watermelon farming, Razorback Hog farming and sugarcaning. These photos feature African-American laborers. Scenes of African-American home life are also featured along with some derogatory captioning.
