This postcard is a studio photo of four friends or "pards" pretending to be hard drinking outlaws. It has a postmark from Spokane, Washington, but there is no year date on the card. The card has a typical postcard message beginning "Dear friend why don't you write once in a while. I rote one before and I did not get no answer." It was probably sent by one of the men in the photo but is unsigned.
The use of a 2-cent stamps suggests that it might have been mailed during World War I, when postcard postage rates were temporarily raised from 1-cent. However, it may have been sent earlier, because a newer stamp was issued in 1912.
