Two Lisbons my stepfather Turk used to call them.  Actually this is a Dutch postcard--from the 1940s, it looks like.  Very much 'designed' by the photographer, what with all the chiaroscuro etc.  Interesting to wonder, given Dutch provenance, if the darker of the two models is Indonesian,  lending a soupçon of colonialist titillation to the whole giggly/perverse ambiance.
