These two real photo postcards are part of a rare series depicting the five senses. Here we have sight illustrated by the lady reading a magazine using a lorgnette. For hearing, she plays music on the mandolin, stretched out on a concrete bench. Both of these scenes are studio shots, mixing the real with faux backdrops and accessories. The woman's dress and the bouquet of flowers have been color tinted by hand.

The franking on the 'sight' postcard looks to be 1904; the undivided back tells us the cards are actually even older, printed in 1903 or earlier. Both of these cards were mailed to the same recipient in Marseille.

At the bottom right corner, the publisher "Trewey D.P." is noted. Each card is about 5.5 by 3.5 inches. No creases and virtually no surface wear. Overall, especially considering their age, these cards are in fine antique condition.
