PORTRAIT OF THREE BEAUTIFUL WOMEN DRESSED IN THE FASHION OF THREE DIFFERENT CULTURES

This vintage postcard is another one of those images that immediately piques my interest. I wish I knew what brought these three women together and why they are dressed the way that they are. It seems to me that the women are dressed in a fashion to represent the clothing of different ethnicities. The woman wearing the beads represents gypsies. The woman with the parasol and kimono represents the Japanese culture. The woman with a flower in her hair, represents Spain. Perhaps these ladies are dressed to go to a party. Note the cat sitting next to Miss Spain. This image is from a private studio. There is a studio name and location lightly embossed on the front of the postcard. This intriguing photo was taken at a studio located in Constanta, Romania. The city is located in the Dobruja region of Romania, on the Black Sea coast. The stamp box in this postcard indicates that the postcard was produced by K Ltd., sometime between 1918 and 1936.   (SOLD)
