PORTRAIT OF THREE MILITARY MEN IN MARSEILLE, FRANCE (ONE IS HOLDING A SWORD)

This cabinet card portrait features three uniformed military men posing for their portrait at the Tully studio in Marseille, France. The soldier in the middle is holding a sword. The soldier on the right has a cigarette in his left hand. Each of the three men are wearing different style uniforms. I wonder if the men are in different branches of the military? These soldiers look squeaky clean. They certainly didn’t go directly from the trenches to the photo studio. The photographer, Marc Tully, did a fantastic job photographing these soldiers. The men are beautifully posed. SOLD

PORTRAIT OF A PRETTY TEENAGE GIRL WEARING A LARGE FLOWERED HAT

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.
