back to graphic design

love the image
Lisl: I am sure you did fine, sherri! It is surprising what a few simple lines can do here
Très mignon ce policier.
Lisl: They look younger every year, Martine!
They started young back then, Elisabeth....
Lisl: Frightening, isn't it - they seem young now, too!
That's just great!! Your old postcards are such a fun find!
Lisl: I have some very sentimental and touching WWI ones to show in November
1964. How delightful, Lisl. They don't make them like this anymore, I'm afraid.
Lisl: I think it is older than that - I think that is just the Post Card number

Good heavens, I'm not sure I've seen anything like this before Lisl. Where did you find it?
Lisl: It was with the effects of one of my Aunts, Chris

From a time when life seemed more simple and less hurried. Does the flap the lift up to reveal something?
Lisl: It does, Alan - a pull-out stream of tiny photos of Bath

HA, I am with Alan here, does the flap reveal something. The smile of the young police officer is very "smiley", Lisl. Great find, hold on to it.
Lisl: Yes - there is a pull-out of Bath pictures, Astrid
Completely funny this old postcard. I like these treasures which some kept for our most great pleasure
Lisl: Yes - this one belonged to my old aunt

They never looked cheery in my experience Lisl.
Lisl: Not even in the 1940s??
I love these. You could buy the same postcard in all sorts of places they just changed the name
Lisl: Yes - a good money-spinner, Bill
What is under the flap? Nothing naughty, I presume.
Lisl: Nothing naughty in Bath, Mary - a joined-up roll of small photos of Bath
What an enjoyable little character.
Lisl: They don't make 'em like that today, Brian - i find them scary!

I think she and Mabel Lucy Atwell were early 20C contemporaries. Each had the same simple, humorous style.
Lisl: Yes - a similar style to Mabel Lucy Atwell, Hugh
They do 'em like that any longer do they? Simpler times!
Lisl: I think most of us were less "sophisticated" too
