PORTRAIT OF A YOUNG EDWARDIAN BOY AND GIRL SITTING ON A GARDEN WALL (RPPC 1902)

This vintage real photo postcard features two young children sitting on a garden wall. The boy and girl are adorably dressed and are very cute. The girl is holding a bouquet of pink flowers. Note the boy’s fantastic curls and terrific cap. The postcard’s message is dated 1902. This postcard was likely published by Felix Korn & Co. (F.K.) which was located in Stuttgart, Germany. I am unable to confirm the publishers name. This postcard lists F.K. as being located in Paris, not Stuttgart. Further complicating matters is that there also was another company that went by the F.K. initials (F. Kehrhan & Co of Bexley Heath, England). This card’s postage stamp is German and the postmark is from the city of Mulhausen. Mulhausen is a city located  in eastern France, near the Swiss and German borders. However, at the time of the mailing of this postcard, Mulhausen belonged to the German Empire and was part of the Alsace-Lorraine territory.  (SOLD)

F. C. MULHOUSE: PORTRAIT OF A FRENCH SOCCER TEAM

mulhow rugby This vintage photograph features the F.C. Mulhouse (1945/46) soccer team. After examining this photo, I was positive that this team was a rugby team, rather than a soccer team. The men on the team are certainly a scrappy group. Some of the guys are built for a scrum. My guess is that the squad was composed of ex French soldiers. World War 2 had ended only a year before this photograph was taken. The Football Club de Mulhouse was established in 1893. The team is often referred to as FCM, or Mulhouse. The team is a French association football club. It is the second oldest football club in France. Mulhouse is a city in eastern France. It is located near the Swiss and German borders. During the times that the Alsace Region was controlled by Germany, the team and city was called Mulhausen. This photograph measures about 5″ x 3″ and is in very good condition.
