The last image in this post is of a child holding a stuffed alligator with a sign that gives us the place and date, Miami, Fla. 1926. The studio has provided a painted ocean and palm trees backdrop to further the illusion.
PRICE ESTIMATES: The real photo images of Victorian ladies, gentlemen and children with alligators are popular and cost between $25 - $50 each. The more elaborate the pose and the better quality the photo, the higher the price. Printed postcards of children riding alligators, dating from about 1910 through the linen period, can be purchased for about $5 - $6 each.
These estimates are for postcards in EXCELLENT condition, and they are only estimates.
