Sepia Saturday 105 - Hark! Hark! the Lark

Inspired by Alan's posting in this week's Sepia Saturday of a festive feast which included stuffed larks, I have decided to follow the theme of larks with this vintage postcard called, Hark! Hark! the Lark.

And continuing on the food theme, and seemingly in the same postcard series, is this one called, If music be the food of love, play on.

If Music be the Food of Love, Play On, vintage postcard, c.1920's

Both postcards were published by Edward Gross, Curtis Publishing.

As usual 100s more vintage postcards on my web site

  3. I wasn't familiar with those quotes. Both are from Shakespeare.

  8. Woman staring out the window in search of sustenance. Ah yes, I've done it myself.

  9. Very fine art for just postcards, and interesting musical instruments too. The first lady has a either a lute or more likely a cittern, a metal string guitar-like instrument with a pear shape body.

    The second lady sits at a type of square piano hybrid that placed the strings upright into a harp shape. It was sometimes called a giraffe piano. Very odd choices for an artist to use as props. Perhaps they considered them more romantic.

  10. Not many larks round here, these dark mornings! Do hear an occasional robin, though...
