Sepia photographic picture postcard titled Oroya G.M. Sandstone. Published by Harvey Photo on Austral-Kodak postcard stock. Divided back. Postally used but the postage stamps have been removed which has left very faint shiny stains but no other damage where they once were on the back of the postcard. It has interesting correspondence in English to Germany on the back which was written at Sandstone by someone who was working at the mine. It looks like the handwritten date is 1912 and that seems likely given that the mine was apparently only worked from about 1904-1914. FAULTS - The postcard has a very fine 10mm-long lateral closed-tear near the middle of the left side and it tapers off into a very gentle long lateral bend that goes about 75% of the way across the bottom half of the postcard. The bend is forward and it has left a lightly creased ridge on the back of the postcard but no crease on the front. There is a lightly impressed pen flick mark (without corresponding ink), which goes from the top of the chimney stack in the image to the right for about 40mm. Trivial corner and edge wear. Several very gentle undulations and some very small faint stains on the back. Very lightly impressed album corner marks.
