G. Hurter

Based in Quetzaltenango, G. Hurter was most likely from Germany or Switzerland. Hurter's real photos are found on postcards with divided backs. Senders must have preferred to enclose them in envelopes instead of posting the photos unprotected in the mail, for few are found with postmarks. The postcard at above right was sent to Switzerland in 1907. Hurter placed a small signature in a bottom corner of a real photo postcard. An example has been enlarged at above left. Hurter also published a series of at least 33 views in color. The color examples shown below all date from 1918.
