A Birthday postcard

given to Florrie Payne, c1914 I would think, although it hasn't been sent through the mail so no stamp and date.  I rather like the idea of postcards instead of cards for birthdays and other occasions.

  2. She's got a kind of BBC presenter face, I can't quite place it. The gestures with her hands are odd too. What a puzzle and what a beautiful postcard.

  3. Thanks Tammy, I love browsing around antique fairs and antique shops and postcard fairs, that kind of place :)
    It does become a bit of an obsession though ;)

  4. Thanks Howard, I wondered if she was the actress Gladys Cooper (I'm not sure) or a model aspiring to be an actress.
