It can be difficult to think, yet there really used to be a time whilst the postcard photo used to be no longer a clich. to arrive it, you will have to set your clock again to the top of the 19th century, while an Act of Congress allowed american citizens to mail a card for only one cent. many years later, Kodak brought an easy-to-use and cheap folding digital camera that positioned postcard energy into the arms of normal voters, atmosphere off a craze. Real photograph Postcards is a suite of the main outlandish and idiosyncratic, attractive or even sometimes extraordinary photos of this early postcard interval.
Painstakingly assembled from the gathering of Harvey Tulcensky, one of many world's such a lot avid creditors of those unique postcards, Real picture Postcards comprises pictures of average phenomena (floods, storms, fires), major highway the United States, rural existence, political parades, and wacky "exaggeration" playing cards (such as a photographically manipulated massive rabbit!). jointly those playing cards exhibit an oddly own and intimate standpoint of the USA on the flip of the 20 th century
