GM362 Oakes, real photos – Exposition visitors in Electriquettes posing with pigeons

“With the Pigeons” / Plaza de Panama / San Diego Exposition / 1915 (sign on Electriquette)
These may all be by Oakes – all have the same Kruxo back, used consistently by Oakes
Note some have “The Book Lovers Shop, 5th & C Sts., San Diego, Calif.” stamped on back

The following do not have “With the Pigeons” sign but backs have Oakes imprint

The following do not have “With the Pigeons” sign or “Book Lovers Shop” or “Oakes” on back but Kruxo postcard backs are the same as above and the same as all other Oakes/BLS postcards

Postcards on this page are probably all by Oakes, although most have no clear identification. All have similar white borders and the typical Kruxo backs. See also similar photos of Exposition visitors by Schellenberg GM530 with Azo backs, and miscellaneous postcards by anonymous photographers.
