These postcards are truly one-of-a-kind: nude cutouts, circa 1950s perhaps?, have been collaged onto two antique postcards to create naughty but humorous scenes. The Rouen, France, souvenir postcard features an Edwardian gentleman looking like Mary Poppins with umbrella and valise in hand as he floats over the city. With the nude cutout added, it looks like he's about to land on the naked woman's shoulder! The collage artist added hints of color, too: magenta, blue and yellow. The original postcard was mailed in 1904! The other postcard is simpler but just as funny. I haven't figured out if the Notre Dame gargoyle is wearing a veil or if that florescent green drapery represents the nude woman's dress? The look on her face lying next to a Paris gargoyle is priceless! The collage artist obviously had a wicked sense of humor!
