Hamlet Photos
Richmond County, NC

The postmark is difficult to read, but it looks like 1910-1913, mailed from Hamlet to Florida. A college friend gave me a whole box of cards from her grandmother's personal collection, all postmarked 1910-1913. It is a divided postcard back. This one looks like a contact sheet, with each scene captioned, so I have a feeling that these were shot on the same day by a hired professional photographer. In the bottom left is "Marchant Photo". I would guess that it was a tourist card, sold at the train station and hotel.
