mr. big horn...


i got this RPPC quite awhile ago and have wondering if it was a horn or some kind of industrial object, maybe some strange early fire hose end. well, i finally heard from a postcard dealer who says it was indeed a horn that made sound, and was used by cooks in logging camps to call the loggers to meals (hence the cook looking fellow holding the horn!). now all that needs to happen is someone has to send me a recording of one of these things because i can't even begin to imagine how beautiful the low tones might be.
