The Real Thing

 
Melon Party

A postcard created by Alfred Stanley Johnson in 1911. Johnson lived in Waupun, Wisconsin. The bottom image shows the original, unedited picture which Johnson used to create the trick effect. The children posed, holding wooden props. Johnson then cut and pasted a picture of a watermelon slice into this picture to create the illusion of a party featuring a giant watermelon .
