DUTCH LADIES ON THE BEACH SITTING IN UNUSUAL SUN CHAIRS

This interesting vintage real photo postcard features two women at the beach. Hopefully its not too hot, because if so, these ladies are shvitzing. The wicker seats placed on this beach also serve as shelters. Beach umbrellas must have been popular sometime after this photograph was taken. Note the gentleman in the background of this photograph. He is wearing a white shirt, white apron, and white cap. He is likely a cook or a waiter attending to the culinary needs of the beachgoers. Printed on the reverse of the postcard is the word “briefkaart” which is the Dutch word for “postcard”. Therefore this portrait was likely taken somewhere in the Netherlands.

  1. love this

  2. I happened to find an Eagle post cardo of my Dearest mother who lived in the Usa in the 20ths and is in a First comunion dress. Is it it posible to know which year was it?

    • It may be possible to determine an approximate date of the postcard. Let me know what the stamp box looks like or better yet, you can send me a scan of both the front and back of the postcard. My email is cabinetcardgallery @gmail.com
