    WW1 Service "boys" over there(1917-19) were approached by postcard sellers and buttonholed to buy these risque cards! Much as they begged and pleaded they were not able to by scenic cards of parks, lagoons, and quaint little streets--so unwillingly, of course--were forced to buy these kind!! (yeah,sure!) YOU KNOW I AM KIDDING!! RIGHT!!
    The colored pictures cost more so the sellers pushed those into the innocent hands of our lily white Army and Navy!! How evil! From protestations of homeland mothers and clergy the censor was heard around the world...eh?? -------but... not in Parie.! Wink!

      A cross sampling of this genre of cards--some less revealing and some more revealing I didn't put on here that were X. These kind of cards sell pretty high valuwise, I looked on eBay.. I don't have any. They are for men. The price range is pretty wide for items like these $6-$39 each---. and every price stop in between.
      They seem to "silly" to us now.

      The last photo (B & W) reminds me of when my mother made tailored dresses for some of the well-to-do ladies in our neighborhood. The ladies would come over to our house for a private fitting, one or two at a time. I would go into the kitchen from the hallway entrance and pretend to be getting a drink and sneak a peek into the living room where the ladies would be in varying degrees of undress! I was 10 years old. [;>)

      I did suppose this was staged to be a seamstress salon. And maybe that is just about the scene that boy of 10 was looking at? It is really kind of sweet and innocent. ( and your peeking too)--just everyday life at a dressmaker.
