This is a rare postcard produced by the Neurdein Studio of Paris (1864-1919) featuring an aerial view of Paris and its iconic Eiffel Tower. The Eiffel is framed by the wires, flaps and struts of the biplane wing. A green 5 centimes stamp is glued on front but not postally franked. Based on the stamp rate, the divided back and the history of the Neurdein (ND) Studio, I feel confident in dating this postcard to sometime around 1904-1914. Verso, the sender offers best wishes to Madame Tabur and her children. Apparently the address is to their grocery store (épicière) in Le Havre, which they very likely lived above. In researching this card to verify its rarity, I came across a stock image site, similar to the famous Getty image services. To simply use a scan of this card on one's web site, the fee is $50. For a business to use the image in a marketing promotion, it's $200. Again, that's just to use a digital scan, not a real postcard. So although this card is not in mint condition, I am proud to be able to offer it for the Eiffel collector. The top right quadrant by the stamp has a light crease and the light background sky shows up some marks. Still, for its age, I think it's in very good antique condition.

Size: about 5.5 by 3.5 inches.

Please note that in the photos taken at natural daylight, the postcard looks more black and white and while it is indeed a black and white photo, it has an off-white, creamy look depending upon what light you're looking at it.
