PORTRAIT OF A PRETTY VIETNAMESE WOMAN WEARING A GIANT HAT IN HAIPHONG (PHOTO BY DIEULEFILS)

This vintage real photo postcard features a pretty Vietnamese woman wearing an extremely large hat. She is dressed in the custom of her country and her era. The text on the postcard indicates that she was photographed in Haiphong, a major port city in northeastern Vietnam. The postcard was published by P. Dieulefils of Hanoi, Vietnam. Pierre Dieulefils was the first established professional photographer in Hanoi. In addition, he was a postcard editor and explorer. He had an excellent reputation as a photographer throughout Europe and Indochina. He won many medals at Universal Exhibitions. It is estimated that he produced approximately five thousand photos and postcards and he is considered one of the greatest photographers of the region. His photographic expeditions included such locales as Vietnam, China, and Cambodia. The Cabinet Card Gallery has a nice collection of early Vietnam  (Tonkin) postcards that can be viewed by putting the word “Vietnam” in the blog’s search box. This postcard is in very good condition (see scans).
