Scope and content

Real-photo postcard with image of a farm barnyard filled with pigs, plus five men, three boys, and a dog. The pigs are fenced in and have a galvanized steel water trough in the pen. Behind them are a large barn with one cupola, a smaller building, and a large haystack with a woman on the building side and some sort of vehicle on the other side. Hand-written on the verso: Ralph E. Sparks, St. Croix Falls, Wisconsin" It is unclear if the postcard is addressed to Mr. Sparks or if the writing is indicating that the farm belongs to Mr. Sparks. Printed on Azo paper with all four triangles pointing up (used between 1918 and 1930).
