Amour, amour! Noyer #2759. Private Collection.

LOVE, LOVE!

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

A Beautiful Ride

Couple riding bike. Noyer #2506. Cyanotype Postcard. Private Collection.

A drop dead gorgeous couple on a bike. I like how she has her arms encircling his neck. It made for an intimate and sweet pose.

I hope to find more pictures with these two together. So far no luck.


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.

Suggestive much? The photographer knew you all have dirty minds!

This is in fact a 1980 repro of the 1920s card. I softened it up  a bit, I can’t stand the dotted matrix of reprints. Now I want to find the original.


The Blue Kiss

Cyanotype. A. Noyer romantic postcard. Private Collection.

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.

Photographer: Alfred Noyer. France.
