    This is an unused Post Card. I've been meaning to post it in one of the other forums. It has a negative sheen look to it when viewed from an angle. Was curious if there is a name for this type of PC besides RPPC (Real Picture Post Card)

    This looks like its posing horse in a circus or something.
    Horse is even smiling for the camera(he knows wahat to do, unlike the boy on top).

    Figtree3 What would you do if you weren't afraid?

    RPPC stands for real *photo* post card (not picture). It is used to indicate that the photo was made with a real photographic process and is not a mechanically reproduced print. The name means something, as it differentiates them from many other types. RPPCs can be taken by either professionals or amateurs.

    I don't know of a different common name for these. :)

    @Makanudo I will have to wait until using the computer to find photos. My phone doesn't have photos of that kind on it. And, why horses? Do you especially like them?

    I've never heard RPPC referred to as Real Photo. Thank you.

    Then what I do have is a real photo because of the sheen of a negative quality of the post card? If I'm explaining correctly.

    It appears to be a photograph with silver in the print. (Silver gelatin is one type.) Originally it didn't have the silvery sheen that I think is what you mean about the negative look. Through the years the silver rises to the surface on many of these types. It's considered to be a form if deterioration, but I rather like it. When it was new it did not look like that.

    I like the picture you posted, too!

    I believe this to be 1907-1915. It is a divided back post card.

    I have had the original for several years. The "cowboys" were named on the back. Second from right identified as Geo. Patton. No verification of that, but interesting. pattonpict 001.jpg

    I don't think I have any photos to show, but I read the title fast and thought it said post your "Village People"... the singing group... Macho Man, YMCA.. you get the drift.

    I always liked horses, probably smartest of animals.
    Besides that I like the idea of threads with certain theme. I will soon start few more threads with different themes. I collect old photos and have nice collection.

    Yes, that does look like an early back. It's nice!

    A "promenade" in 1913 on the Austro-Swiss border at Scesaplana - as if they smelt what was coming...

    In 1914 the Great War started and the Swiss had to defend and watch the frontier towards Austria and Italy on mountains up to 3000 meters. nobody knew what will happen, although many people had the feeling that a war must come.

    It is a real photograph postcard and I agree with Figtree that the sheen is caused by some deterioration [probably left in the light] over time. The divide line on the reverse indicates production from 1908. Pity there's no publisher listed. Horses are a great theme idea. I collect vintage postcards and photos and will see what I can contribute. I tend to collect postcards with dogs in them, the sillier the better :)

    It would be great to have a thread "dogs on postcards"
