Scans of postcards from my collection.

lantelme-postcard-reutlinger-lanthelme97-1-bw

Postcard SIP 97/1. Caption: Lanthelme. Photo by Reutlinger (circa 1902).

This early postcard of young Lantelme was very popular – even now its different variations (tinted, not tinted etc.) are very easy to find online. The actress’ name is written with an ordinary mistake (Lanthelme instead of Lantelme).

Usually postcard collectors prefer postcards without written text, but I think every message is interesting because it’s a bit of ordinary life in this time.

lantelme-postcard-desiles-int

Postcard series SIP, Collection artistique du VIN DESILES. Caption: Lantelme Th(éatre) Réjane. Photo by Reutlinger (Lantelme is wearing a crinoline dress for La Savelli play).

It was a series of ad postcards, with facsimiles of stars signatures and few lines written. Lantelme wrote: Le vin Désiles redonne la santé donc la joie, et vive la joie!!! Lantelme.
