CHAMPAGNE AND A SEXY SHOW GIRL ON ICE (REAL PHOTO POSTCARD)

champagne

This vintage real photo postcard features what may be some photographer’s fantasy. Nothing beats having a bottle of champagne and a pretty young lady chilling on ice. I doubt that many men have actually ever had such a thought. If I was a psychologist, which in fact I am, I might be thinking that the bottle of champagne is a perfect example of a phallic symbol. I wonder if the photographer realized he had created a subliminal sexually charged image when he took this photograph. I’m not sure how to interpret the spider web in the background. If you haven’t noticed, this postcard is celebrating a New Year. The reverse of the card shows a postmark from Brussels, Belgium and indicates the date was December 31st, between 1918 and 1919.  The stamp on the postcard is also from Belgium.

BEAUTIFUL COUPLE MAKING A BIRTHDAY TOAST IN LUCKENWALDE, GERMANY (VINTAGE PHOTO)

An attractive couple make a birthday toast at a table in Luckenwalde, Germany. It is also possible that rather than a birthday, the pair may be sharing New Years Eve. Nevertheless, they are toasting with glasses of beer. Note the couple’s party hats and the streamers hanging from the ceiling. An ashtray with cigarette butts sits on the middle of the table. Perhaps the most wonderful aspect of this photograph is the young woman’s expression as she looks at the young man. Her eyes certainly speak, and they appear to be shouting words of love (or perhaps lust). An inscription on the reverse of the photograph indicates that the fellow in the photograph is named “Martin Hagen” and the picture was taken in 1958. The photo measures 4″ x 2 3/4″.
