Sepia toned, vintage print of a 1920s  postcard. A woman sits beside a type writer, innocently exposing her undergarments. Wooden framed with gold detailing.


Many of these postcards presented scantily dressed women. With so many images uncredited for legal reasons, it is challenging to identify whether these were the first of a set of images that may have included full nude sequences. These were illegal to send via post and were often purchased under the counter and kept close to hand.

A large number of studios would use scenery, painted back drops and props in an attempt to legitimise their work as art. Somethings never change, sadly I feel as though, 100 years on, a large number of us still feel the need to do so…
