This card and the Band Stand card below are possibly "undivided back" postcards - we would have to look at their back sides to be sure  They both have large areas on the front where the sender was required to write a message.  These postcards would be over 100 years old!  Printed during the 1901-1907 era.

This card was printed during the very popular "Photochrome Era" of 1945-1970.  The "Chrome" era is characterized by the glossy color picture postcards that you can buy today.
