Teich postcard images depict different, more romantic views than Helen Morrison's photographs. Interested in the people who worked on the farms, Morrison uses the bucolic scenery as a backdrop. The postcards intentionally omit people, choosing to focus on the landscape, architecture, and winning horses. In fact, company artists removed the African American groom who held Man O'War's reins in the original photograph from which the postcard was made.
The Curt Teich Postcard Archives Collection, widely regarded as the largest public collection of postcards and related materials in the United States, was acquired by the Newberry in 2016.
