Real Photo Postcard of a young Maxwell Perkins, addressed to himself

by PERKINS, Maxwell

Condition: Fine


Fine. Real photo postcard (image directly from a negative, not printed). Approximately 5.5" x 3.5". Postmarked 21 July 1906 from Barnstable, and 22 July 1906 from Boston. About fine. Oval photographic image of Perkins sitting in a rocking chair on a porch, probably in Barnstable. Perkins has labeled the photo "Jack did it!" and has addressed the card (in effect Signing it) to himself at Apthorp House at Harvard (a distinguished Colonial home in Cambridge, now the Master's residence in Adams House). A nice, early, and perhaps unrecorded image.
