About the work

This real photo postcard features an image of Margarette Davenport posing for a portrait. She is dressed in cowgirl attire consisting of a wide-brimmed hat, light-colored blouse and fur chaps. She is a scarf wraped around her neck that crosses on her chest. She is sitting on top of a horse and is holding a gun. The backdrop behind her features several palm trees. The named [Margarette Davenport] is written at the bottom of the postcard just below the image. On the back of the postcard the word [POST CARD] is printed at the top. The words [CORRESPONDENCE] and [ADDRESS ONLY] divide the back into two sections. There are no inscriptions on the back but the number [908] is written on an orange round sticker placed in the top right corner.
