Description:  Authentic vintage English postal card with a real photo of a Victorian lady seated in a posing chair. The photo is credited: "Y. Burns. The Studio, Victoria Pier, Blackpool." Her gown is a light color with huge puffed sleeves and a sweeping skirt with rows of tucks parallel to the hem. The sleeves have double caps over the main body of the sleeve and there is crocheted lace trim on the cuffs and around the shoulders. An elaborate hat with a feather and gloves complete the outfit. The card measures 3 1/2" x 5 1/2" has a matte finish, and a divided back. The stamp box contains the words: "England: Half-penny stamp Foreign: One penny." The condition of this postcard is only good at best. It has soiling and toning and the image has begun to turn silvery. And yet, the lady is somehow captivating!
