1916 card – reverse

Same picture, 10 years and two postal eras apart.

Note that there’s been quite a bit of retouching on the 1916 postmarked card.  In the top card, there are power/telephone poles and liners, plus part of a sign on the tall building on the left.  All that’s gone in the circa-1916 card.  Using a lens, it’s easy to see how the publishing company colored in the bricks and the greenery in the background, but left most of the lower part untouched.
