Amour, amour!


Amour, amour! Noyer #2759. Private Collection.


The kiss which brings together
Our souls is the sublime
Union – My lips quiver
Of a sweet feeling



Are you a doll too?

PC Paris #1925. Postcard. Private Collection.

What an interesting French romance postcard! The man is the same as on these two postcards, but I’m not sure about the woman. Between them is a porcelain doll she is using to touch the man’s neck. The doll itself is giving her a side glance!


This is the first time I see a doll prop on these, and I absolutely love how the photographer used it! It’s a bit surreal, almost as if the doll is alive too.


(My thoughts today are with my family and friends in Paris and France. These are uncertain times, and my heart breaks for my country.)

Sigh in Sepia

Sepia Embrace. PC Paris. Postcard. Private Collection.

Another beautiful French postcard. Here the woman is leaning above her admirer with drama. To me her gesture reminds me so much of the stereotypical way women acted in silent films.

I have what I think may be the same couple on another. He’s wearing the same shirt too.

Passion in Rust


1920s P.C Paris postcard #1511. Private Collection.

Like the Blue Kiss, the postcard company decided to publish this one in a way that wouldn’t present the models on top of each other when they obviously are, except this time the man is below the woman. She’s wearing patterned robes reminiscent of East Asia, and he pajamas. A sexy postcard enhanced by the choice of tint.

I have a tamer one with these two I’ll be posting soon. On it she wears different robes and he the same pajama shirt.

A Fine Golf Day

Snapshot. Private Collection.

1920s golfer ready for a fun day. Snapshot. Private Collection.

Nice day for a round of golf! This gentleman’s got everything: the clubs, the foldable Kodak camera, and what I assume are the plus-fours for the sport folded under his arm.

I was given this snapshot as a gift. How nice!

The Look of Love

Another beautiful 20s romance cyanotype postcard, this one innocent and tame for a change.
