Holding an issue of Camera Craft magazine, a monthly published in San Francisco, California between May, 1900 & March, 1942, a young boy with his legs dangling sits on a wooden tomato crate which has been stenciled on the side as being from Pennsylvania-indicated as:  Packed For….PA . Printed on an AZO brand photographic postcard, it was taken anonymously between 1913 and June, 1923, when the cover of Camera Craft the child holds was illustrated with this design featuring the profile of a landscape view-camera with hanging bulb shutter release.
