Real Photo Postcard, Lady in Winter Coat

AZO Real Photo Postcard, Lady in Winter Coat

I have noticed an increased interest in blog posts relating to woman’s vintage fashions.  The above fashion related real photo postcard was another find from the same collection as the postcard for the Camp Logan blog post.  The lady is wearing a thick and heavy coat.  The high buttoned collar looks snug, which should help in winter.  The fur muff is bigger than others I have seen.  I wonder if a bigger muff was unusual?

Found another real photo postcard of two ladies wearing uniquely styled large hats and warm winter coats:

1909 May Farini Postcard - Lady in Duster CoatOne of my favorite non-Santa Claus vintage postcards is the one to the left signed by artist May Farini.  It pictures a Victorian lady on a ship’s deck wearing a long coat called a Duster.  Ladies wore them to keep dust off their legs when walking or touring before paved roads came along.  There are no dirt roads around her, so she must be wearing the Duster coat to keep the chilly wind off her.


Feel free to look at other Santa Claus, children in footed pajamas, and May Farini postcards from my personal collection on my web store’s gallery page.
