The Pforzheim Album 14

Another hidden photo and another mystery.  When I took out the top card for scanning, I found a second card, same people, same clothes, and obviously, taken at the same time.  But, the image that was visible is credited to "H. Mehlin, Photograph, Buhl i. Baden.  Tel. 385"  The hidden card, "Imperial Art Studio, East Fordham Road, N.Y."  The only thing I can think of is that the owner of this album emigrated to the United States, had the negatives from the original shoot, and had another postcard printed.
