A PRETTY YOUNG WOMAN AND HER WONDERFUL HAT

A pretty and well dressed young woman poses for her photograph at a studio in Berlin, Germany.This photograph was taken at the Wertheim studio located on Leipziger Street in Berlin, Germany. It is possible that the name Wertheim actually represents a photo studio in a department store. Wertheim was a large German department store chain which had four stores in Berlin. The chain’s most famous store, Leipziger Platz, was constructed in 1896. The store featured 83 elevators and an atrium with a glass roof. This young lady appears to like the “layered look”. She also seems to have a penchant for wearing jewelry. Note her necklace, two rings, and pin. She is wearing a wonderful hat and has a fur on her lap. I think that this young woman qualifies for the tile of “fashionista”. The message on the reverse of the postcard is dated 1915,  This vintage portrait postcard is in very good condition (see scans).

  1. Here is the transcription and translation: Meinem lieben Ernst / Lichtenberg, 3. März 1915 / Mein lieber Ernst! / Wie ich dir schon schrieb, habe ich deine Briefe erhalten, einige Tage hast du ja, wie versprochen, alles nach geholt, muss nun wieder warten, seit einigen Tagen bin ich ganz leer ausgegangen. Du hast vielleicht wenig Zeit? Max hat schon recht lange, nicht mehr geschrieben, hoffentlich ist er auch gesund. Wie geht es Dir lieber Ernst? Hier ist jetzt ganz häßliches Wetter. Nun sei vielmals recht herzlich gegrüßt u. geküsst von d[einer] Martha. —– To my dear Ernst / Lichtenberg, 3. March 1915 / My dear Ernst! / As I have written already I have received your letters. For some days you have now catched up on everything, now [I] am to wait again, for a couple of days I have been missing out completely. Perhaps you are short of time? Max has not written for a long time, I hope he is in good health. How are you dear Ernst? Here the weather is abominable at the moment. Now I greet and kiss you many times, Yours Martha.
