Very interesting. Thanks for posting. I would look at the citydata main website and see if you can find anything about lahoma there. Do a google search for "lahoma, Ok" chamber of commerce or something. Good luck and thanks again for posting the very interesting photo!

I am looking at the photo and the guy with the flintlock rifle and pistol seems to be posing like some pretend pioneer scout. The weapon is much to early for the time period and I don't think many wore a pistol on their belt like that unless they were into theatrics.

Then the "burly woman" by his side! Look at the hands and wrists on that babe and long forearms and the rough face. I think it may be a man dressed as a woman. If not, forgive me.

But the woman next to him looks quiet the genuine lady and is rather good looking.

I think this postcard was a bit of a humorous spoof that people back East might buy for a laugh? But, then, I could be wrong.

There IS a Lahoma, OK. The zip is 73754..I looked it up on the us postal service website. You could probably mail the cards either to the postmaster general or to city hall or city offices. It's a VERY small town and anything mailed to an official would get to where it needs to be.

We drive through there going to my parents several times a year. It's a speed trap!!! Major highway -5-6 lanes and speed limits of 25 and 35...I DON'T like Lahoma...sorry!!!

I didn't notice that at first, especially the gun, but it is older than the era. .

That burly woman??? Yup, they look a bit rugged. That is a really neat postcard though and it's so nice of you to want to find a home for it.

By the way, you sound familiar. I believe we know each other. Welcome to City Data.

LOL! Okay, so the "burly woman" comment has me cracking up!
LOVE the photo! Thanks for sharing...gotta say, in my research of mine and hubby's family history I have come across some "burly women" in photos...that very well could be female and not a man pretending to be a woman.
((Suddenly I'm having flash backs of Victor Victoria!))
