      Are you holding several items or just one?
      Does the card come out of the holder?
      End view, back view?

      Well, I have a few different ones. They aren't all the same. This is one that had the nicest picture quality. The card does not come out of the holder. Its almost like its glued to it. I'll try to get a back and side view when I go back to work there this weekend.

      The image is of a farm electric power & light plant, mfg. by the Alamo Farm Light Co. Chicago.
      32 volt, patented around 1915

      What has me intrigued is the metal holder.

      That image has some value to collectors of old stationary engines & power plants.

      My brother thinks they might have something to do with movie theater stuff for some reason. Does that make sense?

      Not so sure on that.
      Is there glass over the image?

      Yes there is glass over the image.
