This real photo postcard is blemished and lacking the professional touch. Don't you just love it? Perhaps this was a photo booth set up at a low-budget carnival?

A serious-looking little girl with blonde bobbed hair has one hand clasp around a ball and string as she holds on to the 'steering wheel' of the 'airplane' with her other hand.

Standing next to her is presumably her mother and isn't she an interesting character? Look at that dark, swarthy complexion. Black Dutch [sic] from Germany?

They do not appear to be enjoying their flight over Paris with the Eiffel Tower and Sacre Coeur in the background. Quelle dommage! (What a shame!)

Verso, this card is marked K Ltd. in the stamp box. Online research says this postcard publisher existed from 1918-1936, but I can't find any other facts. This card is printed in French and English. I have seen other K Ltd. cards with German verso, so obviously this was a company with an international reach.

Please note that the card looks 'gray' in the photo. The scans accurately convey that this 'black and white' real photo has a warm tone to it. Size: about 5.5 by 3.5 inches. Signs of age and imperfections visible in the pictures. Wonderfully vintage.
