The Wayside Church – circa 1905

For a warm Sunday in July, this example of postcard art circa 1905.

Pictured on the face is a painting of a rural church such as one might find in many parts of Europe.

The cypress bushes and the fields of lavender suggest France, or some other part of southern Europe.

The postcard was published by an English form, M. Ettlinger & Company of London and New York.

The postcard was printed in Germany, sometime before the use of the “divided back” postcard was authorized for mailing.

This postcard was not mailed.

One hopes that a postcard collector of the early twentieth century was attracted by this creation of an anonymous postcard artist.
