Eléphant de Mer

Imagine having to feed this sea loin fish by fish? He (or she) was resident at the zoo at Bois de Vincennes, Paris around 1948. I can't help wondering what would happen if he/she overbalanced!

I hope they all find somewhere to sleep. This card was sent in 1905.

Gone Fishing

Another baby card. Has she just fished for these babies? I’m afraid I have a dark sense of humour. Perhaps she is going to use them as bait!

The château on the lake

Here is another dream château, his one is at Montaudin and is by a lake. The postcard is over a hundred years old.

Someone came here looking for châteaus. I’m afraid you won’t find any of those anywhere, try châteaux.

Hope it didn't rain!

I wonder how it felt to be (hopefully) whizzing along in one of these. The bus came from the same region as this one

O la la!

These three ladies are modelling the latest fashions at the races at Auteuil. If you look closely at the lady on the left you will see she is wearing a ‘jupe-culotte’ which has divided legs! From what I can find out this was in 1911. The card has writing on the back but no date.

Flowers for August

I just had to share this one with you. I think that the colours are so lovely I’ve used it as my desk top. The card itself is winging its way to a new owner in the United States. Another satisfied customer!
