I found him again, with chicks

PC Paris #2963. Young man with chicks. RPPC. Private Collection.

That was way too easy. :)

Do you remember when I posted the beautiful couple on the bicycle? That was last September. I hoped to stumble upon this 1920’s postcard model again, but I did not hold my breath. So when I spotted him after eight months of casually scouring seller stocks, I was thrilled to finally add another one of his cards to this collection. Unlike some others he is near impossible to find. Unfortunately, there is no information about postcard models of the period. I would have liked to find out who he was.

While I understand the models who posed for the more risqué cards had to hide their identity and are now essentially uncredited, I don’t see why there is absolutely no information about the models who posed for tamer photoshoots. Frustrating!

This was of course an Easter postcard (I edited out the French greeting for this blog).
