Postcard Friendship Friday

Postcard Friendship Friday is hosted by our lovely postmistress, Marie.
Be sure you go by to visit.

Marie had a lovely postcard from Picadilly Circus posted for PFF. I didn't have anything like that so I visited the New York Public Library and found this:

"London Life - No. 7. A Newsvendor. Beagles Postcards
In Many Favourable Spots For Custom, Newsvendors Have Secured An Odd Corner Or Railing, Which Serves In Place Of A Shop For The Sale Of Their Wide Selection of Periodicals And Newspapers"

The Library listed the following additional information: Schwimmer-Lloyd collection, 1852-1980, bulk (1890-1960) / Rosika Schwimmer Papers / J. Photographs / Woman Suffrage and Feminism. / Individuals / Women's Professions

Location
: Stephen A. Schwarzman Building / Manuscripts and Archives Division

Happy PFF!

Thanks for the visit, my Snappy friend, and for your earlier posts where I now know another book I NEED and some cool places to get embroidery ideas. [Life is good.]
Hope your weekend will be lovely :O)

I love reading about the history you post. Congratulations on winning that book! Yay for winning lovely stuff! I'm glad the parcel got there - it certainly took it's time - must be those stringent security border checks!

P.S. Love the new banner too.

That is an interesting card. It is also interesting that they have it filed under "women's professions."

What a card! Gosh, I really like my job...I wouldn't want to have that job! How she is sitting does not look comfortable or ergonomically sound! LOL!
