A blog about things that I'm interested in and I'm interested in a lot of things (But the postcards took over).
Well, what ever she intends to do, she seems to be satisfied and pleased with it seeing the expression on her face.All these old postcards are really masterpieces. Today's postcards are so sterile. In Montreux we have so many tourists. And all they can get is postcards. At least with some choice. Montreux seen from South or North or West etc.!!
That is a very intersting analogy. I guess since they didn't have baby carriers she had to improvise. A carriange would have done a better job. I do like the dark humor you portrayed. :o)
Peter: I agree, modern cards aren't the same. I think that the photographers (for postcards at least) in the past were more artistic.Titania: I will look out for cards with perambulators on now!I find all of these baby cards a little sinister.
Hello,A splendid site, congratulations.In the early 1900's mortality rates were such that fertility and childhood were celebrated much more than today.Today the multi baby cards may seem sinister but in their time they were a source of amusement (the new art of the photographer and his/her studio tricks) and celebration (of family).Kind regards from EnglandLinda
