Souvenir postcard: "Mule Team Hauling Borax in Death Valley." Published by Rosin & Company of Philadelphia and New York, printed in Germany, divided back, postally unused. We've seen a used example canceled in 1908, which is when this company is known to have published other postcards with the space on the front for additional writing.
