~Real Photo Postcard of W.R. Willey~

wr.jpg (66026 bytes)

Here for your consideration is a postcard of this WILD MAN of NORTH AMERICA taken wearing his habitual outfit of SHORTS...and NOTHING ELSE!

This is an early REAL Photo postcard, as you can see...I am putting my last two featuring this WONDERFUL MAN on today, having sold all of the rest.

From what I can tell, my scanty research (and it isn't much, folks--I really have tried to find out more, because he is so interesting...PLEASE check my other auction...and look for others out there -- I have seen them!)  Mr. Willey's home base was SPOKANE, Washington.  But, I found that he travelled the country in this homemade vehicle (I had several cards which featured this contraption...and they were purchased... Along with his collection of WILD ANIMALS which included POSSUMS, Coyotes, & such!

I believe he must have supplemented his NATURAL LIFESTYLE by having his picture taken and selling these RPPCs.

The writing on the card above reads:

W. R. Willey, Dog, Coyote, Turtle & Possums, 1940 On TREASURE ISLAND, San Francisco, Calif.

Here is a picture of the BACK of this card.

Back is NOT Divided...NOTE the Stamp Square is marked EKC, which dates this card to between 1939-1950.

There is one condition problem with this wonderful card to report.  At one time, it was bent -- you can see the crease mark/line in my pictures about 1" in from the right hand side.  Because of this, my price is lower on this card than on the others of Mr. Willey.

Never Mailed...Slightly soiled..only where the crease is.

This card has been in a plastic postcard envelope for as long as I have had it, which has been at least 25-30 years.
