Hand made vintage postcard, c.1907

I've just acquired a batch of 200 or so vintage postcards to sort through. Not having much time this evening I chose the first one that really stood out to share. This is a really unusual postcard and I've never seen anything quite like it before. It features a portrait photograph inserted into a cut-out oval shape picture of some flowers, all of which has been pasted on to a plain postcard, way back in 1907.


 The greeting on the back of the postcard reads, 'Put me in a nice place in your album and send me yours by return. Thanks'.

As always 100's more vintage postcards on my web site.

  1. That's an interesting card and message. It's the second mention of old albums on PFF today1

  2. An original artist trading card, maybe. It does sound like an arranged swap.
