look pleasant please


This is a black and white real photo postcard (photographic postcard) that has been addressed and mailed. The image depicts a white dog with dark ears and markings on the face, possibly a Jack Russell terrier, standing behind a crate that holds a folding camera. A smaller, darker dog, possibly a dauchshund, is sitting on a chair in front of the camera.

Text in the upper left of the front of the postcard reads: Look Pleasant Please.

The back of the postcard contains a postmark indicating that it was mailed from Lowry, Virginia on the morning of May 29, 1907. A postage cancellation mark is running across a green Franklin one cent postage stamp. The postcard is addressed to Miss Lena Judd in Bedford City, Virginia.
