    No Binding. Condition: Collectible-Fine. Original black and white photo postcard. "1922" printed in the description on the back. 5 1/2" x 3 1/2." All text, including the title, printed on the back. Postcard is unused. Postcard is very clean and intact except for age toning on the back. A Fine copy. This postcard shows a group of northern fur seals (Callorhinus ursinus), formerly known as the Alaska fur seals (Callorhinus alascensis), on a rocky shore. A caption, "In the Museum of the California Academy of Sciences, Golden Gate Park, San Francisco," possibly refers to the location of the original image. There is also a description. Part of the description reads, "This shows the North Rookery on St. George Island, Bering Sea. One harem, consisting of one old bull, several cows and their pups, is in the foreground; many others are in the distance." The description proceeds to advocate for the hunting of these seals after the science of the time, 1922, argued that the 1912-1917 ban on hunting seals not only cost the United States economically but also harmed the seal population. However, later science would dispel this belief when the northern fur seal population declined over the years. The description refers to the ban of onshore seal hunting enacted between 1912 and 1917 which was added by the U.S. following the North Pacific Fur Seal Convention of 1911. The 1911 convention banned all commercial hunting of fur-bearing mammals at sea in the Pribilof Islands, including St. George Island, except for hunts by Indigenous Peoples. The 1912-1917 ban also halted all onshore hunting of fur seals. Despite the enactment of the 1911 treaty by the U.S., Canada, Great Britain, Japan, and Russia, the hunting of these seals resumed both on land and at sea for various reasons. Another fur seal ban was passed in 1957, but it was not until 1984 that all commercial fur seal hunting was banned in the Pribilof Islands after a significant public campaign and scientific evidence showed the seal population's decline. Today, the northern fur seal's conservation status is "Vulnerable.".

The aquarium opened its doors during the 1930s and was Oregon's first saltwater aquarium. A variety of marine life were showcased and all were caught locally in and around Depoe Bay. The aquarium remained in business until 1998. Sawyer's was founded by Carleton Sawyer and A. R. Specht in 1914 and was based in Portland, Oregon. The history of Sawyer's goes back to 1911 when Sawyer made his signature "Sawyer's Scenic Photos," which were produced until 1917. Sawyer's began as a photo-finishing company but eventually expanded its services and products to include slides and slide projectors, View-Master reels and viewers, postcards, and greeting cards. Sawyer's enjoyed much success and profited greatly from its lineup of the innovative 3D stereoscopic viewer, the View-Master, postcards, and greeting cards. During the 1920s, Sawyer's was the most prominent producer of postcards in the United States. During the late 1930s and early 1940s, Sawyer's most profitable line shifted from postcards to View-Master products after the View-Master viewer debuted in 1939 at the New York World's Fair. Sawyer's remained in business until 1966 when it was acquired by the General Aniline & Film Corporation (GAF).

This postcard shows a bull shark with an attached remora at Marine Studios in the town of Marineland, Florida. Marketed as "the world's first oceanarium," Marine Studios eventually took on the same name of the town it resides in, "Marineland." Marineland first opened in 1938 and was founded by W. Douglas Burden, Sherman Pratt, Cornelius Vanderbilt Whitney, and Ilya Andreyevich Tolstoy. Marineland was also one of Florida's first parks to feature marine mammals. The park quickly gained popularity and had steady attendance for the next few decades. The opening of Sea World helped bring about a decline to Marineland during the 1970s and among a host of other factors, the park fell into disrepair during the 1980s and 1990s. After the park changed ownership and underwent remodeling, it reopened as Marineland Dolphin Adventure in 2006, which is still open to this day.
