This vintage real photo postcard features a pretty teenage girl wearing a large hat topped with flowers The postcard is color tinted and published by Furia as part of a series (no. 1786). Furia was a French postcard company. Most of the Furia cards that I have encountered have been greeting postcards. Pure artistic Furia cards, such as the one above, are much harder to find. The message on the reverse of this postcard indicates that it was written in Marseille, France in 1917.  (SOLD)

  1. I translated this sweet message, adding punctuation to make it more understandable. Marseilles 11/9/1917: My dear little Léone (Leonie?) darling.
    I send you this little demoiselle to say hello to you [as} your Papa is so far away, and who last Saturday was still with you, said goodnight to you in your pretty bed and prickled you a little with his beard to give you a stronger caress. This Saturday, deprived of this happiness, I send you again the very sweet caress from Marseilles and a thousand kisses. Your dear Papa who loves you much, much, much.

    • Thanks for providing a translation of the message. I agree with you, the message is incredibly sweet. The art of letter, or postcard writing, is becoming extinct. Instead we have replaced the creativity and intimacy of such writing with terse and non descriptive text messages and emails. Thanks again for the translation.
