Lapland is a region largely within the Arctic that spans parts of Finland, Sweden, Norway and Russia. The Sami people, earlier referred to as Lapps or Laplanders, are the historical inhabitants of this area. This postcard captures the traditional dress of Sami living in the Norwegian region of Finnmark. While Norwegians form the majority of the population on the outer islands, the population is mixed in the fjord settlements, with Sami forming the bulk of the population in the interior. A reversal of Norwegianization policy in the 1980s has seen an official apology from the King of Norway, reparations being made to Sami, the introduction of Sami language in schools, and a revitalization of their culture.

The Cawston Ostrich Farm was established by Edwin Cawston who in 1885 imported 50 ostriches from South Africa to start his farm in South Pasadena, California. After an early setback that saw only 18 birds survive the overland railroad trip from Galveston Texas to Pasadena, Cawston was able to breed the flock up to 100 birds.
