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.
3.  Midievil Craffe Gateway
This beautiful postcard shows the amazing Porte De La Craffe the remnants of the Midievil building that served as a prison during the revolution and was built in the 14th century. It is in Grand Rue the oldest city
4. Town Hall, Northampton England
Another beautiful postcard; real photo with a rich sienna color from the early 1900's showing the Town Hall in Northampton England. It shows the ornate details of the building and the cobble stone roads.
5. California Redwoods
6.  Dutch Windmill
Staining shows darker on this beautiful greeting card than it actually is.  The staining is mild - moderate and the crd is simply lovely.
