Bryan speaking, #4820

William Jennings Bryan made three unsuccessful bids for the White House: 1896, 1900, 1908. This real photo postcard is quite interesting because the person who sent the card was in the crowd, heard Bryan's speech, and comments on his campaign in the message on the back of the card.
