The heyday of the post card was basically from 1900-1912 or so. This is a “real photo” card, showing a residence. Itinerant photographers would travel from town to town, take photos of homes of prominent citizens (or others who paid them) and sell copies to the owner, who could then send photos of his house to friends, etc. Photographers in various communities, as well, did the same for their locales. What endures from this passion for photographing and sharing images of homes is a wonderful record of the domestic architecture from that time period.
