“And I shall follow this commandment to the letter!”

This is such a sweet real photo postcard of a would-be couple embracing across a fence they wish weren’t between them.

And this is an Edwardian mass produced one where the gentleman isn’t wearing high contrast eye makeup and rouge on the lips.

Photographer: The Rotograph Company. New York.
