Postcards In The Attic - New Listings

Finally, I have had some time to list a few new items. It has been so crazy busy lately but a good busy. I'm flying home today for a couple days and I will be off again on another trip. Thank you very much for sticking with me, I am almost through my training so I will be able to be more active again.

1.  France
A beautiful postcard with an image of a man rowing a boat on the water ways near a mill. The caption says "Le Mans. - L'Huisne au Moulin du Gue de Maulny. - LL" "A La Civette" is found in the lower right corner. It is the name of a famous cigar shop in paris, so I believe that is where this card was sold or at least was to promote the shop. The cigar shop has been around since the 1700's.

2.  Barcelona
I love this card it show such details of the everyday city life in Spain around a hundred years ago. There are people dressed in clothes of the period, horse and buggy, and it shows the cobble stone street. It is truly beautiful.
