I found this inside an old postcard storage book. It is not an RPPC or even a postcard however it is the same size.

You all may wonder how I know it is from Stewartsville, Missouri.

The other postcards were all sent to a woman in Stewartsville. I know that this lady's maternal grandfather was a member of the LDS Church.

The five gentlemen are identified whoever received this card wrote on the front--it is clear yet hard to read.



All I have been able to determine is that it dates from 1914 or before as the gentleman furthest right in the postcard died in mid-1915.

Scanned real photos do not display the moire patterning in your image.

With a magnifier (or a HiRes scan) you will be able to see the dots in your halftone image.

Ikey in person and even zooming in I can see the dots.

I did not know what the exact term used to describe what I was seeing.

Thanks for letting me know that this is a halftone image.
