Note
  • Real photo postcards are created by developing a negative on photo paper having a pre-printed postcard backing. Eastman Kodak introduced its Velox photo paper with a postcard backing in 1902. Real photo postcards remained popular until the early 1930s when the CMYK color printing process was invented
  • Title supplied by cataloger
  • Range of possible production dates based on date of Pomona Air Show (1914), and printing design of the stamp area on verso of postcards. This design, featuring the letters "AZO" and upward pointing solid triangles arranged as a border around the 3-line notation "Place Stamp Here," was used between 1904 and 1918. Azo was Kodak's most popular postcard paper. See "Guide to Real Photo Postcards," on the website of www.metropostcard.com
