Amalia, c. 1918

Amalia Rovai (?), c. 1920s. My translation: "To my dear family, sent with affection."

Here is a photo postcard, not of a celebrity (I don't think), but someone who had a picture printed as a postcard, as discussed previously on another member's Postcard Friendship Friday  post. I think the hat, lapels and big flowers indicate the WWI era, but I'm not sure. Her soulful gaze reminds me of those intense close-ups in silent movies.


  1. Love this card! Love hats! Those were the days! Happy PFF!

  2. Quite a hat. Victorian hats are so interesting, and creative.

  3. Love the feathers on the hat.
