Real Photo Postcard Boy Dressed as Railroad Conductor Taking Man's Ticket, Pittsburg, PA

By: N/A

Price: $21.95

Publisher: Pittsburgh, PA, AZO/Arcade Studios: 1926-1940's

Seller ID: 0277

Condition: Fine


This is a fun real photo postcard showing a man pretending to be a train passenger and a young boy dressed up like a conductor to take his ticket. Maybe a grandfather and grandson on an afternoon in Pittsburgh having some fun. I wish we could date it exactly, but it was never sent and has no writing on it at all. The only clue is the markings on the stamp box which indicates by the four squares in the corners that it's from 1926 to the 1940's. Big span, but a great image! View more info

This is an unusual offering, a 3" in diameter metal sign for the Southern Pacific Lines which was a premium for Post cereals back in the 1950's paired with a color postcard showing Southern Pacific 4294.
