Vintage from the 1910s

Materials

Antique real photo postcard titled Minor Surgery shows a patient on a gurney in an Army surgical operating room, circa World War I (around 1917). A surgeon holds a surgical instrument above the patient while another man in white who may be a doctor or orderly, and a mustachioed man in a military uniform look on. Love the old apothecary bottles on the shelves behind the two men.

Standard size (3.5 x 5.5"); postally unused; Azo stampbox with 4 triangles pointing up. Mild edge, corner & surface wear; crease across upper left corner.

First image shows rppc in high contrast. Watermark doesn't appear on actual photo.
