Weighing a Baby Orang - New York Zoological Park

This organization is more commonly referred to as the Bronx Zoo which opened in 1899. They published a great many postcards of zoo animals through a variety of printers. The Rotogravure Company printed a fine collotype card set for them in black & white and with color tints though their name does not appear on these cards. The Detroit Publishing Company also produced sets for them. 


  1. Nice image, and I'll just bet that you have more postcards from that series to share. Tell me I'm wrong!

  2. No, you're not wrong! You know me too well Mr. Stevens! You can now add "postcard psychic to your extensive resume! :)
