Here is the second of the two postcards of the Touraine that I recently purchased. This is of four “Pretty Young Girls of Vouvray”. The message on the reverse, from a father on a summer holiday to his daughter who lives in Derby, is really sweet….or am I just getting sentimental in my old(er) age.
It is postmarked 1908 but, if you look closely you will see a sign for 1906 just above their heads. I wonder what the rural occasion was? For a previous blog of women’s costume in the Touraine click here.
