Postcards like this get me to thinking about what an RPPC really is. Most postcards start off as photographs, after all, so why are some RPPCs and others aren’t? Its a good question and sometimes it almost falls into the “you know it when you see it” category. That’s very unsatisfactory though. After all, there are lots of postcard views of things such as this that are not RPPCs. I used to think that RPPCs were not massed produced, but then you get into the definition of mass produced. Many RPPCs are picture of people that were just included in a set made by a studio, and these are definitely almost one of a kind. Some are nothing more than snapshots that people took and had printed on postcard paper I like those, btw , and they are obviously not massed produced. Others, like this one, are not studio produced, but are quite professionally done, complete with the caption in white on the front scratched on the negative, I think.

Real Photo HBC was going to persue this subject in greater detail. It is, however, a very complicated subject and to our delight we found that someone has already done a great deal of work on this topic. Real Photo has a very detailed compilation of postcard stamp boxes. This is an excellent source rhat can be used to help. HBC Stamp Box Data H ere HBC has compiled a table with some of the basic stamp box types that we have encountered around the world and the approximate dates when available table 1.
We have used data compiled by other sources, but have confirmed and edited the entries with postcards archived on HBC. We have also added some additional entries not found in some of the sources we checked. This is, however, only a very basic listing. The number of companies is quite large. The companies here, however are among the most important. We have also noticed cards with destinctive stamp boxes, but we do not know the company involved table 2.

They are scenes straight out of the golden days of seaside holidays — full of busty bathing beauties, henpecked husbands and more double entendres than you could shake an, er, stick at. And now, it seems, the saucy seaside postcard is set to make a 21st-century comeback — and could soon be appearing on everything from boxer shorts to mousemats. That is the vision of businessman Ian Wallace, who owns the rights to more than 50, designs by the best-known manufacturers of the postcards, Bamforth.
We will add any other dated post cards without stamp boxes we find here.

It is a welcome addition to the other three blanket toss postcards I posted previously. This one, like the others, shows natives and tourists having a great time throwing people into the air. I like that all the folks in this shot have big smiles on their faces. These blanket toss postcards are popular with my blog readers.
It seems people are interested because of the obvious, it looks like fun, and it gives a glimpse into the traditional way of life most people never see. These photo postcards show a relatively new use for a traditional activity — the sharing of a traditional hunting skill with tourists from outside the community. For eons, the blanket toss is used to spot game, usually during the spring whaling festival see below.
These postcards show how gracious native communities can be in sharing their heritage. The cards also preserve a snapshot of that heritage for the world. It is obvious that not everyone can travel to Alaska nor live the subsistence way of life, yet everyone can be enriched by learning about these practices. I am grateful that when I lived in Western Alaska, native people openly shared their life and traditions with me. I gained survival skills during that time that served me well on several occasions.
It also gave me a whole new perspective on native cultures based on the sometimes harsh realities of life on the coast.
Oh! what a naughty war . . .
Two women played by men , in bonnets and shawls and holding up parasols, stand in animated conversation in front of a fence. They are then seen — as the camera remains in the same position — from the other side of the fence as two workmen creep up to the fence, pull the hems of their skirts through a gap in the timber, and nail them to the fence. This is the first example of switching perspectives within a single scene with time continuity.
When the women discover their plight they try to get away hitting the men with their parasols and pull the fence down taking it with them as they pull away.
