oldguy:

Outstanding!

Q/ Did you know the mountain, or did you get a search hit?

(I did not bother googling the image, on the theory that all those mountain ranges look alike.)

Thanks very much for the ID.

Puzzler: the upper 'arrow' looks like a water/chem spot on the negative; the lower 'arrow' corresponds to a clearing, though its outline is unusually clear in the RPP image.

Cheers,

Another RPP I struggled with: the "Convento De San Angel" ... which did not google well for me, so to speak.

The publisher's logo puts them in Mexico City: M.R.MARTINEZ // XOCHICAIJALA 51 // COYOACAN DF

("Coyoacán refers to one of the 16 boroughs of the Federal District of Mexico City as well as the former village which is now the borough's historic center.") Sadly, I got nowhere with variations of the street name.

http://www.todocoleccion.net/postal...ca~x18315992 ... clearly the same fountain, in the same coutryard (on the same patio), but identified here as the "Patio del Ex Convento del Carmen" ...

... which would be fine, but the Ex Convento del Carmen images I found on a slew of websites show very different fountains in very different patios ... and never show 'my' fountain.

Not to coin a phrase, but 'when does it get easy'?

Cheers,

/s/ ikeyPikey

An ethnographic RPP of 'indigenous flute players' in Peru.

Bonus I: Nice handwriting, Bertha!

Bonus II: the Correos del Peru Chavin Huacos stamp printed by Waterlow & Sons, London. "Chavin Huacos are Pre-Columbian (Pre-Hispanic) ceremonial vessels which have been unearthed in various Inca ruins and sites of other Peruvian cultures ..."

Those MNHOG stamps I don't collect give better scan!

Cheers,

Prohibition (1920-1933) was over by the time Curt-Teich published this card (the s/n dates it to 1935), but Mexico was probably still a favored destination for boozey vacations.

Cheers,

Nice "one point perspective". Combined with the limited palette, this linen card has a kind of surreal feel to it.

Looks like quite a sophisticated crowd for a Tijuana beer hall.

People used to dress to go out. Gonna guess this is mostly an LAX crowd.
