This advertising postcard for Modes Tourneur is not only pretty but a bit of a historical gem. In the right corner of the building note the name Séeberger. Brothers Jules, Henri and Louis opened their photography studio, Séeberger Frères, in 1909. They made a name for themselves as avant-garde fashion photographers. While this postcard is a staged, studio set up, they became known for photographing real women, the "beautiful people" of French high society, on the streets, at the race tracks, in cafes. This postcard is a historical piece from their early days. Tourneur is no longer in business at 26 Rue Lafayette in Paris, but no doubt it would have been a thrill to have something from them delivered in one of those huge hat boxes! The white border on this postcard shows wear but the image itself is in fine condition. About 3.5 by 5.5 inches.
