Two ‘Outside’ Postcard Photos – AZO by Kodak

Today I share two ‘outside’ postcard photographs.  These photographs weren’t actually taken outside, but the backdrop used made you think the people in the photographs were enjoying a wonderful day in the woods or at the beach.  Both postcards have the AZO symbol where you would place a stamp to mail the card.  In the four corners are triangles pointing up, which can be dated 1904-1918.  Many times photographers set up a tent and took photos while people were enjoying an outing, or during a festival.

This family photograph probably was taken at a beach-side photographer’s tent.

This photograph of two sisters has Boeckmann, Park Photographer, Olcott Beach, N.Y., stamped on back.

  1. Seems we rarely see pix of anyone with short sleeves. This one with 1/2 to 3/4 length sleeves is a little unusual. Most of the photos taken were people in their Sunday go to meeting clothes, full length everything. I guess all photos were taken in the cool weather. I can imagine Mother tell all, even Father, to get on your good clothes ’cause we’re having our photo taken.

Any thoughts?
