Sepia Saturday 109 - Doll

I knew I had a least one vintage postcard featuring a doll to share for this week's Sepia Saturday but it took a bit of searching before I eventually found it. This poor child, who I assume is Dutch given the clogs and windmill, is having a hard time trying to stop her doll being taken away by a goose of some sort.

Vintage postcard of Dutch children

As usual 100's more vintage postcards on my web site

  2. For years a group of gooses lived near a canal in Amersfoort. They crossed a busy road a couple of times a day to get food. People living in the neighborhood even made special road sings to warn the drivers. Finally they were removed because it became too dangerous.

  8. It is a great card : the kind of image that was only ever produced for postcards. An entire story within a single image,

  10. Those geese can sure be mean! I can only imagine her fear of her baby becoming food that day.

    Great share,

  11. I’m glad you found the card, The expression on the boy’s face is priceless. Later he will get a telling off fom the little girl, for standing idly by whilst a goose ate her dolly.

  12. I really like little Dutch children in postcards, they have a special cuteness to them! Great post card! They are having fun showing off her dolly!

  13. I hope that an adult happened by and rescued the doll and the kids before the goose decided to give her a bite.
