|Postcard promoting William Howard Taft for president, 1908.
This "realphoto" postcard is an example of "exaggeration," a composite image that juxtaposes elements (in this case people and argicultural produce) out of proportion. The crowd welcoming Taft at a whistle-stop is dwarfed by enormous onions, cabbage, potatoes, and ears of corn; the implication being that Taft brings properity and abundance with him. A unique campaign postcard that is seldom offered.
