This real photo postcard (RPPC) depicts the "Martin & Burgert, Harness and Saddles, Bicycles, Motorcycles and Sundries" store in Osborne, Kansas.

Based on the "AZO" stamp back the photograph dates from about 1905- 1918.

I've always like this image because it shows the advance of technology at the beginning of the 20th century and a start of the shift from animal power (Harness and Saddles) to motor vehicles (Motorcycles).

At the front of the shop is a hitching rail and two motorcycles. I am not sure what type of motorcyle these are.
