Description:
REAL PHOTO POSTCARD OF A "DETECTIVE" WITH FAKE BEARD AND MOUSTACHE- ca.1890-1915.
This is an unusual real photo postcard of a man in a disguise with a center-cut star shield badge on that clearly reads, "- U.S. - Detective." This is an unusual photo because of the fake moustache and beard, not commonly observed in most photographer's prop images. The image may be from earlier date, but the transfer was excellent. the contrast and tone are very sharp. The card measures 3.75"x 5.25".
