The Peach Embrace

These sepia (but I’ll say peach) tinted real photo postcards are gorgeous, the color is soothing to the eye. The first of two smoking lovers breathes the 20s -pun. I look at it and hear Scott Joplin’s “Easy Winners”.

The second features the same man and the same woman but without her brunette wig (or she put on a blonde one,  whichever). She’s wearing a different dress too, but the ring on her left hand is the same. The male model is wearing a different suit too.

The Blue Kiss

Sometimes less is more, and in the case of this postcard it is exceedingly true. I find this image incredibly sexy. The way she looks into the distance with her arm resting under the head. And his light kiss on the curve of her jaw.

I find it interesting the picture was shot vertically with the man on top, yet the postcard company decided to publish it horizontally. Well, I choose to post this picture the way it was shot. If Americans could do really sweet and funny postcards, this one proves the French did the sexy with flair. A hundred years later this image still feels timelessly gorgeous and sensual.
