Dating Postcard Using Autos

Recommended Posts

Hi....I'm a local historian in Fort Collins, CO and I'm trying to date an image taking in Northern Colorado and used on a real photo postcard. There are no obvious clues to the date. The stamp box, on the back, which is one way to date a real photo postcard, was unfortunately used for a long time, so it gives a broad date range - 1924 to 1949. There are three automobiles in the photograph. Unfortunately, they are pretty small. Below are two images, one showing the entire photo and the other is a closeup of the cars. I'm hoping someone can narrow the date for me.

 

Thanks for your help.

Thanks for all of your help.

 

Yes, the ranch is still in operation. It is in Northern Colorado, but it looks like you have to get to it from southern Wyoming. As it turns out, it is currently for sale. The 17,000+ acre ranch is listed for $44.9 million. Maybe a really big bunch of us could go in together and buy it. You can find the listing and its 160 photographs by searching Diamond Tail Ranch in Colorado. It is gorgeous.
