Lady with hat and umbrella
I always enjoy looking at how people were dressed, so I was pleased to find this card amongst a lot we bought at auction. I noticed the signature under the chair when I was scanning the card and looked it up. The photographer was Henri Manuel (1874-1947) who was famous for his work and you can still buy posters today. I haven’t been able to find a biography of him though.
On Saturday we’re off to another auction in la Rochelle. I can’t wait to see what interesting cards we come home with.
