If you looked at this real photo postcard and started singing "Why, Baby, why?" -- well, I completely understand. I did, too! The postmark franking is not clear but it looks to be 190-something. With the divided back, that would narrow it down to 1904 or after. This card has silvering on the right side and some specks here and there, most of which aren't visible with the naked eye (one in her hair and on her chest.) No creases and almost no surface wear. Typical antique postcard size: about 3.5 by 5.5 inches. Verso, the sender is letting the recipients know that on Tuesday, they will be taking a 3-hour train ride to Caron. Incredibly, Google maps shows there are five towns in France called Caron! That funny logo at the bottom stands for Mecanophot, E. van Bosch, Strasbourg. (Thanks to The Postcard Album site for this information.)
