Vintage Postcards – 5

This little card is probably my favourite of the whole bunch, and is much more Christmas-card-like than the French New Year cards, with a wide-eyed ‘Red Riding Hood’ looking at a groupof three toys – perhaps one for her, one for her male companion and one for her puppy …

Uncle Pierre sent this to Charlie on 26 December 1917. At this time Pierre was in Genoa, Italy, and Charles Bory was living in Lausanne. I like to think that Charlie found this card as charming as I do as there are two pin holes at the top and bottom, indicating that it was pinned to a wall or board at some point of its life.
