~1940s

Mint Canyon Highway, n.d. (probably 1930s-1940s). Unused real photo postcard, divided back, created by Frasher's Fotos of Pomona, Calif.

Frasher's Fotos Inc. was Burton Frasher Sr. and his wife, Josephine, who opened a photographic studio in La Verne in 1914 and moved it in 1920 to Pomona. Burton Frasher traveled the Southwest — including Death Valley, Mt. Whitney and various places in Arizona and New Mexico in the days before good roads — shooting photographs for real photo postcards, which he sold through various national distributors. The business was active until his death in 1955.
