To continue the cooking theme of the previous post, this postcard from Germany is an unusual portrait of a young cook in her kitchen uniform. Taken in a studio against a rustic painted backdrop, her spotless white clothes glow under careful studio lighting.
Like CDVs in the nineteenth century, individual postcard portraits were often exchanged as tokens of friendship. That appears to have been the case with this one. A visitor to the blog very kindly translated the message on the back of the card in the comments under the post (see “Little Sparrow” below).
“Wishing you and your loved ones a happy and healthy Easter. Yours Bertl.”
