Mixing business with pleasure? There’s much implied on this daring postcard. At least there are no wedding rings on display! Sometimes those Edwardians seem to be surprisingly forward with their sense of humor, and the determined smile on the brunette is scary!

Edwardian French couple. Dagoreau RPPC. Private Collection.

A gorgeous couple mailing from Charente, France. Bertha is sporting the “Gibson look” so in vogue at the time with the extra small waist and pinned hair in a loose bun. Her husband is classically dapper in the matching starched frock suit with the creased pants and high collar. The photographer logo is embossed on the bottom right.

Postcards were mailed so quickly they were the equivalent of today’s text messages.

We're coming home tomorrow Tuesday. To cherished friendship. Best wishes from Charentes. Bertha Georges
