Mystery RPPC:
A crowd from long ago

It's the second real photo postcard of the week, and we know roughly zilch about this gang. The stamp box indicates it was an Artura RPPC taken between 1908 and 1924. So we don't know whether this was before or after World War I or the 1918 flu pandemic. Some of the older members of this group could have been born in the late 19th century. Most of them look pretty bundled up, and it sure looks like the landscape in the background is covered with snow. Those are some dandy button-up sweaters. It always strikes me as odd that there are so many RPPCs like this with nothing written on the back.

Here's a closer look at some of the folks.
