Archivist's Comment

This postcard--as well as 477, 478, 479, and 487--all have a glossy sheen to them. When held in an angle in the light, you can see the silver in the chemical processing of photo development. Several other imperfections in the developing are vision, or the photos have degraded in unique ways over time. -MN
