Attended the Tulsa postcard show over the weekend, this was a stellar find. Nelagony (post office named Nelagoney), pronounced "Nuh-log-any", is an Osage County, Oklahoma dead post office. Name is an Osage word meaning "good water" or "spring." Open from 1906 to 1959, it was once the intersection of the Midland Valley (Fort Smith & Pawhuska) and MK&T (Parsons & Oklahoma) lines. A few homes still exist in this little community.

Time to bump this one up. Here is another ceremonial ppc. I wonder whether this had also become entertainment for the tourists by this time.

Gslaten, your Indian Pony Race card is very familiar to me. I live in Pendleton, Oregon, and every year at the Pendleton Round-Up the bareback Indian pony race is one of the most popular events of the rodeo. Tribal members from across the region come to compete.

Nice post, Makanudo! I think most Native Americans would find that card amusing because it is quite obviously staged. The men are just sitting around in full war regalia. It would be like a family watching TV in their living room and Dad is in a formal tuxedo. :-)

Thanks GregAlex!
I thought about that when I got it and I also noticed that the woman in picture is in more modern clothing and not so formal.

Got these down to size and then seem to have forgotten to post them. I 'think' these are BIA housing for Navajo people that were built at Fort Wingate outside Gallup, New Mexico but have never been able to really confirm this... Anyone have ideas?




naturally the back is blank on all three. AZO stampboxes from about 1910 or so. Found them tucked in a book that the former archaeologist at Williamsburg had owned.
