I'm not sure if this looks more like an old postcard or just an old photo — the thickness of the white borders convey a postcard-like effect I think, but overall it seems more in the category of an old personal photo. Either effect, though, would be appropriate in my mind because I wanted to evoke the idea of travel in earlier times like the 1950s or 1960s.

Yes, I definitely think this works as a travel photograph from the 1950s or 1960s. Xunantunich in Belize is not a tourist travel destination that has been massively built up with fast food places and glitzy shops. I don't think you could have easily gotten here in the 50s or 60s, but if you could have I imagine that the area would have looked fairly similar.

That's the sort of tourist destination that I prefer, when possible — a place that hasn't been massively built up and isn't dominated by glitzy tourist-trap shops. I don't mind a few because occasionally I will, I admit, see something that interests me. But when that's all I see, I get depressed and wish I were someplace else. I didn't feel that way when I visited Xunantunich in Belize.
