Not quite so Instagram
Early in the history of Polaroid film the company supplied albums, copiers and mailers, this one so a freshly-coated instant photograph could be conveniently stiffened and prepared for sending through the post office.
The other side has a place for the postage, and an address. The adhesive is still a little sticky, even after decades. Not sure how old this one is.
Note the die-cut shape in the middle. Polaroid had a lot of steel rule and other dies to cut the many paper and plastic sheet materials used in the products.
