Blank postcard. Black and white image on front shows three men. Two of the men sit in a fake car made of painted wood and look stoically towards the camera. They are both wearing fur coats, what look like fishermen's caps, and smoking cigars. The third man stands behind the "car" wearing an American Custodian's helmet and what looks like a policeman's jacket without a badge. He is smiling at the camera and holding a sign that says "Northampton 23 Miles. Go Slow" The style of clothing and vehicle suggests it's from the 1890s.
