      If you right click on the image, you can open it in a new window/tab. From there you can download the postcard to your computer.

      If you mean ‘where can I get a reprint of the original photo’, then you’ll need to research the publisher and see if they even exist any more. If so, you’ll have to hope they have the original still saved in their files somewhere, and can find it. Otherwise, you could try and research the name of the photographer, who is no doubt long dead, and see if there is any way to access his photos. I am not optimistic about finding the original after more than half a century.
