Edwardian Beauty


This card was printed by Neue Photographische Gesellschaft (NPG) Berlin, although I can’t date the card the printers produced high quality cards from 1894 until it closed in 1921

  2. It seems to be fairly common in late Victorian early Edwardian glamour postcards to add children, not too sure why other than to portray a family scene or to suggest fertility.

    Quite a few cards from the period show an actress holding a dog or cat which is supposed to suggest an intimacy between the viewer and subject.
