This card is in excellent condition. Approximate size is 3 3/8" X 5 1/2". PLEASE SEE MY OTHER REAL PHOTO POST CARDS THAT ARE FOR SALE. Once, around 1994, I visited the once Stamford home of C. His son (Conrad), my brother in law's Grandfather, lived in the house until he passed away in 1988.At that time, in the backyard, the saddle shop was still standing when I visited. The backyard saddle shop took place AFTER the downtown saddle shop. I think the backyard saddle shop has been torn down.
When my brother in law went to his Grandfather's funeral circa 1988, all of the saddle making hand tools and hand operated machinery were still in the little backyard saddle shop. He told me there were hundreds of paper templates of saddles in a giant pile on a shelf that were thrown away.

He is buried in the family plot with his wife Lalla and son Conrad.
