WWI Allies Butterfly Women Postcards
There are some beautiful WWI-era designs honoring the Allies - in this post, we look at a series of women as butterflies - on each, the wings have the colors/design of the country's flag.
Published in France, the postcards have this information printed on the back. They are all flat postcards with wonderful colors and great fantasy artwork.
I have included some historical information from Wikipedia at the bottom of this post.
The Allies of World War I were the countries that opposed the Central Powers in the First World War.
The members of the original Entente Alliance of 1907 were the French Republic, the British Empire and the Russian Empire. Italy ended its alliance with the Central Powers, arguing that Germany and Austria-Hungary started the war and that the alliance was only defensive in nature; it entered the war on the side of the Entente in 1915. Japan was another important member. Belgium, Serbia, Greece, Montenegro, and Romania were affiliated members of the Entente.
