This vintage real photo postcard falls under the category of  "incredibly cute". The photograph shows an adorable curly and golden haired little girl giving her porcelain doll a bath in a wooden barrel tub. Two additional dolls are seated in a chair beside her awaiting their turn in the tub. Behind the little girl is a clothes line from which the doll's clothes are hanging to dry. Scattered around are some unused clothes line pins and under the small table holding the tub, one can find the doll's shoes. The scene is terrifically posed. The postcard is of French origin and published by Fauvette (#1302). The postcard is postmarked in 1913.

The two cute and gorgeously dressed girls featured in this vintage real photo postcard are presumably sisters. I am not sure how to best describe their dresses and hats so I will just label their attire as "unusual and interesting". Hopefully, someone informed about fashion history, will leave a comment with further explanation. This photo postcard was produced in Spain.

A YOUNG GIRL AND HER DOLL WITH MUSSED HAIR

This cabinet card portrait features a cute little girl and her large doll. The child is well dressed and doesn't seem to be particularly pleased to be posing for this photograph. Apparently she did not have the inclination to brush the doll's hair to make her more presentable for the date with the photographer. The photograph has scalloped edges. The child and the name of the photography studio are unidentified. The previous owner of this cabinet card asserted that the doll is of German origin but I have no confirmation.

This vintage real photo postcard features a portrait of an adorable little girl posing with her cute dog. The dog is captured by the photographer in a loving pose with the canine's paws atop the little girl's shoulders. The postcard was published in France but has a Belgian stamp and postmark (La Louviere). The postmark and the message from the sender indicates that the postcard was written and sent in 1913. .

PORTRAIT OF AN INQUISITVE TODDLER IN ROANNE, FRANCE (CARTE DE VISITE)

This Carte de Visite features an adorable child displaying a skeptical but very inquisitive expression. The toddler is sitting on a chair and wearing a short gown with strings across his/her shoulders. The child's attire would be unacceptable today due to safety concerns. The photograph was taken by Jean Emile Dessendier of Roanne, a city in central France. The cdv was produced in 1889 or later as evidenced by the printing on the bottom border of the photograph which states that Dessendier won a photography medal at the 1889 Exposition at the University of Paris.

FRENCH AVIATION PIONEER ROGER SOMNER PILOTS HIS BIPLANE (VINTAGE REAL PHOTO POSTCARD)

by bmarshphd

This vintage real photo postcard features a portrait of French aviator Roger Somner (1877-1965) sitting in the pilot seat  of his 1910 biplane. Somner was an aviation pioneer. The Washington Herald (1909) reported that he broke a world record in a Farman Biplane by flying one hour and fifty minutes at the height of 80 feet. This was a record due to the length of time logged in the air. The Oregon News (1909) described an international aviation contest involving at least five nations competing for about 401,000 dollars worth of prizes. Somner was representing France while the American competitor was Glenn Curtiss (another celebrated aviation pioneer). The Lewiston Evening Journal (1910) reported that Somner ad established a new world record by piloting a plane with three passengers for a total of five minutes. Somner was clearly a brave man. This vintage postcard has a postmark from the French city of Bordeaux in 1951.

PORTRAIT OF TWO YOUNG GIRLS AND A DOLL (VINTAGE REAL PHOTO POSTCARD)

This vintage real photo postcard features a portrait of two young girls and a doll. One of the girls is sitting in a wicker chair with the doll on her lap but the second girl has her hand on the doll as if she is saying "this doll is mine too". The photograph of the girls seems to have been taken outside or else the photographer has a great backdrop and is very good at setting a scene. The girl's names are written on the reverse of the postcard. "Dorothy and Margirie Warfield" are probably sisters. A quick genealogical search discovered that the 1910 US census lists sisters named Dorothy (age 3) and Marjory (infant) Wharfield (also spelled Warfield). The sisters and the rest of their family lived in Portland, Oregon. The girl's parents were Arthur (age 29) and Gertrude (age 28). Arthur worked as a merchant (furniture store). It is very possible that the girls in the census are the same as the girls in the photograph. This postcard has a CYKO stamp box which indicates that it was produced sometime between 1904 and the 1920's.
