Lotte Herrlich, Real Photo Postcards

I love vintage postcards. My best friend, Dave, collects antique postcards and photos of old New Orleans. A couple of times a year he goes to big postcard shows and I tag along. The last show I bought a shoebox full of great vintage postcards, photos, and Valentines. I will admit that I kept a couple of the baby boomer vintage Valentines ... but I found plenty of old ephemera to list as well!

Here is one of my favorites. It's a color tint photo by Lotte Herrlich. She was a German photographer who did a lot of beautiful portraits, including lots of pictures of children. This little girl with her doll is just so sweet!

This cute postcard sold for over $20 to a collector in Switzerland.
