    if you put the image into negative there's writing under the P of postcard,
    it could well be the imprint of the pen tip left on the rear of the photo

    it's too low res to make it out

    Cravat

    They seem to be wearing a cravat, Canadian army had cravats in their uniform in the 20's & 30's

    The first vehicle on the left is flat the rest are slightly tilted as well, its hard to see because they are not square on with the camera.

    But all the vehicles behind them are relatively in line, they must all suffer from short right leg syndrome

    Why are they all leaning to the left
    I didnt notice it until it was mentioned

    I suspect they are on a slope and the natural thing on a slope is to be vertical rather than perpendicular

    I'd say it's the word "POSTCARD" in mirror image. A lot of old photos backing paper were postcard templates.

    What does the water mark on the photograph read?

    Do you have to original perhaps?
