SUBJECT: Such a delightful real picture postcard (RPPC), likely hand-delivered to its recipient. "Topsy and Scrub and I, do you recognize us?" writes Flora to her friend Nevah. She's one independent young woman, Flora, posing with her kind carriage horse and beloved dog for this portrait taken in 1909 and dated January 1, 1910. I'm guessing Topsy is the dog snuggled within Flora's encircling arm and Scrub is the easygoing horse. I wouldn't have bet against this trio. Together, they must have been unbeatable.

HORSE NOTES: She's an expert driver of the nifty roadster she's seated in. Look at the reins and whip held so easily in her right hand. The mare's tipped hoof speaks to how relaxed and unworried she is, very familiar with her driver and Topsy, too. I don't know that she's a mare, by the way, I just think she is, even with a name like Scrub.

DETAILS: This original vintage BW real picture postcard (RPPC) measures 3.5 x 5.5 inches and is in excellent condition, free of flaws, stains or blemishes. It's a gelatin silver photograph; its mild silvering is visible in the scans.

SHIPPING & HANDLING: Paper items are wrapped with care in acid-free sleeves, placed between two pieces of cardboard and shipped in secure packaging within two business days of purchase.

VINTAGE: All vintage and antique items have unique histories and are offered for sale in exactly the condition they were found. They are sold “AS IS.”
