Two Real Photo postcards which I found in a larger collection of vintage postcards. One is signed, "Ever yours, Eva", but I think they are both pictures of Eva. In the first she is wearing boots that button up the sides. In the second, laced shoes fastened with big bows.
I started off trying to date the cards from the style of clothes and shoes and that led me to believe that the first was a little older than the second. In am no expert on fashions over time. However I then noticed the backs of the cards.
They were produced by Thomas Illingworth and Company who manufactured photographic papers until about 1930 when they were taken over by Ilford. Between the POST and CARD there is a symbol which may represent the date of manufacture. If this is the case the picture of Eva at the garden gate could be from 1919, 1921 or 1922. The other remains a mystery.
