A Real Photo Postcard of a pretty young woman who looks to be in her early twenties, in a photo of the same era, early 1920s that is, wearing the unmistakable drop-waist dress –   too bad we can’t know the color, and note the beautiful bead work or sequins at the cuffs, neckline and at the vertical overlay flap (there must be a term for this part but I’ll be darned if I could find it) and and wearing double-strap shoes with button closures. The message on the back is:

“Este serbia [servia?] de un recuerdo de una amiga y mucho la estima, Marsiana Michîl   15 de Disiembre de 1923.”

Translated as:   “This serves as a memory of a friend, with much esteem, Marsiana  Michîl, December 15, 1923.”

Addressed to:   “Fra Gadalupe de Rodrigues     Nogales  Sonora.”

The above is most likely:   “Francisca Guadalupe de Rodrigues”  and the city of Nogales is located in the Mexican state of Sonora, and is on the border of Arizona.

Divided back, Real Photo Postcard, unused with writing. Dated December 15, 1923. AZO stamp box.

Price:  $4.00
