The Mysterious Madeleine

Promised a while ago I would post more of my 'romantic' French postcards of the 1920s. Also ventured the theory that some of the 'men' in them are actually women in drag. Case in point: I have five or six cards featuring the androgynous model on the right here, whom I believe to have been female. Something a little Billy Tipton-ish about the ears, lips, wrists, hands.

This image is part of a set of three or four but alas I don't have any of the others yet. Together they document the 'feeding of the madeleine' in all of its various suggestive stages.
