Looking at these old postcards and seeing how many views of American Cities you can see, you can not miss the occasional postcard that seems to capture a bit more of the day in the life of the American town. Many of the postcards I have found seem to have a child, or animal who appears to have been posed just for that picture.
A young boy on the empty street of Barton North Dakota who appears to be laughing while standing on the side of the road. There’s not another sign of life behind him.
Not to be outdone, a few Postcards have animals clearly the subject of the photo, as seen here in Oatman Arizona.
