The postcard is a silver gelatin print (has a nice silver bloom on it when held at an angle) - it has a divided back and is postally used with a Fairbanks postal stamp dated May 2, 1914 along with an American Flag cancel over a 1 cent stamp. It is addressed to G. O' Neil Federal Bl'dg, Seattle, Wash.I can't find any biographical information about the addressee G. O'Neil - but since his address is the federal building in Seattle, I imagine he had something to do with the Land Office or with Parks' work. Parks worked for the U. Condition is as follows : NEAR MINT - the photograph is Clear and Bright with GREAT DETAIL. There is a tiny crease close to the left edge and a small spot of foxing on the bottom border by the words Caribou Herd. This has a lovely sepia brown color and while this photo was taken at a long distance, you can still make out the detail of each individual caribou climbing the side of the mountain. The overall condition of this great SIGNED REAL PHOTO POST CARD is NEAR MINT! There is FABULOUS detail in this photo - it is BRIGHT and CLEAR with NO FADING - just a BEAUTIFUL Early Alaskan Photo with a great subject! If any of the pictures look fuzzy or show some light marks on the photo, that is a result of the flashback from the flash or my out of focus pictures/poor photography skills and is NOT on the original image..
