Someone trimmed the edges of a standard, flowery postcard and then pasted a black-and-white photograph of a man and two cows onto the front, leaving a border. The card now measures 4¾ inches by 3 inches.
It was never written on or used.
From the look of the trees, I would say this photograph may have been taken in early spring. Beyond that, I would say that this photographer had the same problem that we have constantly with our cats. Taking pictures of black animals — especially on dark backgrounds — can be a daunting challenge.
For absolutely no reason, I have employed cutting-edge CGI techniques to seamlessly insert a chicken into this photograph. You're welcome.
