A GIRL's Best Friend - RPPC Females & Canines Postcards
Everyone knows that a dog is "man's best friend"...these real photo postcards from 1910 - 1930s show that dogs are a woman's (and a girl's!) best friend, too. These are all divided-back postcards. Some have vivid color tinting, like the French New Year greeting above.
Whether the pup poses with a famous performer as in this image above from Rotary of London, or with a pal as in the tinted French glamour pose below, the dogs add charm to each postcard.
Dogs can give us a companion, a playmate, a confidante and a protector...here are two delightful scenes of young girls with their big dogs and captions that describe what these pets mean to them. Both of these postcards were published in the UK.
These two pretty ladies with little dogs above are both published by Rotary of London. They have delicate color tinting. Our last real photo postcard was published in France and shows a little girl with roses and her dog. It was postmarked 1931 from the Netherlands.
PRICE ESTIMATES: The real photo postcards shown in this post cost from about $8 - $14. These estimates are for postcards in EXCELLENT condition, and they are only estimates.
