History with its flickering lamp stumbles along the trail of the past, trying to reconstruct its scenes, to revive its echoes, and kindle with pale gleams the passion of former days. ~Winston Churchill

New Blog: Mille Baisers

You may remember a couple posts I've done on these romantic postcards from France in the 1920s, the first actually called Romance Postcards of the 1920s, the second The Romance of Robert and Raymonde. The cards look like this:

If you liked these, great news! I've started a blog dedicated to them, Mille Baisers (the French equivalent of ending a a letter "with love" or "xoxoxo".




In this blog I'm not only going to share postcards from my rapidly expanding collection, but discuss various aspects of their characteristics and creation. This is my original research; no other photo historians have looked at these, nor has anyone else, really. So, if you're interested, do stop by! 


The Passion of Former Days, of course, will continue as is, don't worry.
