The theme for the 6th edition of A Festival of Postcards is: White.
So this is your chance to share any of your black and white postcards, or colour postcards featuring white (think white sands and snow, White Cliffs of Dover etc.). As always, feel free to play with the theme. Do you have postcards depicting places that incorporate the word white (or bianco, blanc etc.)? How about a play on words (e.g. white elephant, it`s not black & white?) You’ve pretty well got carte blanche!
Playing into the theme of “white,” I decided to go the black and white route. Many of you know I collect old photographs, including real photo postcards (I blog about them a Who Will Tell Their Story?). I’ve picked them up at antique stores, estate sales, and eBay. Until today, I didn’t even know I had my own real photo postcards! I have a whopping total of seven, all identified (such a deal!!). So for this edition of A Festival of Postcards, I thought I’d share one of these finds instead of an orphan on my other blog.
This is an RFC of my grandfather, Harold MILLER and his brother Raymond. I estimate that this photo was taken about 1920, based on the ages of the boys and their known birthdates (it also corresponds with the stamp identified at playle.com).
Aren’t they adorable?
