1920s postcards

If only these postcards could talk…

When Mum was 7- or 8-years-old,  a lady she calls Nanna Forte gave her a bundle of old postcards. Nanna Forte lived a few farms down the road. There are postcards from Eastern Europe and some from Scandinavia, and they’re addressed to different people.

The ones I thought might interest you, dear MyFrenchLife™ visitor, are the six postcards sent from France between 1921 and 1922. They are addressed to the Williams family, who lived in Sydney at the time. I wish I could ask Nanna Forte how she came by these cards or whether she knew the Williams family, but she passed away many years ago.

And the postcards are written in Spanish.
