Horseshoeing Blacksmithing Shop J. MEISTER PROPRIETOR Antique Real Photo Postcard Circa 1910 *RARE
Black and white real photo postcard featuring the "J. Meister Proprietor Horseshoeing Blacksmithing Shop".
The postcard does not include an handwritten caption. Based on the AZO imprint in the stamp box, it was printed between 1904 and 1918. Old photo papers used silver in their emulsions and as time passes silver tends to migrate to the surface of the print creating tell-tale metallic patches, which on this postcard is visible.
The business may have belonged to Michael J. Meister of Batesville, Indiana who purchased a blacksmith shop from Leo Kirschbaum in February of 1910, but the connection has not been confirmed.
