This vintage real photo postcard is truly fantastic. The postcard features a pretty woman wearing a gorgeous spider web style hat, complete with spider. To top things off, the hat is made of torn newspaper. This photo postcard is advertising “Le Matin” which was a French daily newspaper that was first published in 1884 and discontinued in 1944. This interesting photograph was taken by E. Rameau. The postcard’s stamp box indicates that it was published around 1916.
