This is a real photo postcard from The Kregel Photo Parlors of St. Paul and Minneapolis, Minnesota. It pictures a man and a woman in a hot air balloon studio prop. The balloon appears to be painted on a backdrop with a cutout for the subjects to be photographed.
The man is probably Massie Edgell, though I am not sure how to interpret the information written on the back. Massie Edgell was listed as a head of household in the 1920 census. At that time he lived in Minneapolis and was 32 years old. He was born in Indiana and had a wife named Inga who was born in Norway.
