Vintage Postcards – 6

Because a child with a goat just isn’t enough … here’s the old classic Girl With Dwarf Elephant.

Sent by Louise herself to her mother and dated 1 January 1918, it still has the hand-ruled pencil lines on it to mark the bottom of the lines and also the top of the lower case letters!

The card also sends happy new year wishes to Angele Denis and “petite Andree et chez elle“, as well as “la famille Biardeau“.

She signs off with ‘a thousand kisses’:

“Reçois chère maman les mille baisers de ta fille.”


1 Jan 1918
