Fantastic old real photo postcard (rppc) of two men posing with chalk ware figures at the Panama Pacific International Exposition (PPIE). The PPIE was a world's fair held in San Francisco, in the United States, between February 20 and December 4 in 1915. Its ostensible purpose was to celebrate the completion of the Panama Canal, but it was widely seen in the city as an opportunity to showcase its recovery from the 1906 earthquake.*

The men, identified on back as Charlie Campbell & Mr. Carpenter pose on a bench holding their PPIE goodies.

Very good vintage condition- just under 5-1/2” tall x 3-1/2” wide.
