Lonely Isabel 1904
I have no 'Then and Now' image to post with this postcard. However the message on the postcard lifts this postcard out of the ordinary into something quite special. Fellow postcard collectors will immediately see why this postcard is special. The writing on the front says 'I wonder if I shall ever have anybody to take me out like this' and on the back the lovelorn writer says to her friend 'It wouldant (sic) be half bad if we were in the same place would it. Isabel'. Poor lonely Isabel is clearly longing for romance and has never been taken to a restaurant by a potental husband. Shame.
