Additions to the Postcard Collection March 30, 2011

I mentioned in my previous entry that I had found a few postcards over at Magus Book Store.  Well, here they are.  No great philatelic history connected to any of them but still I am pleased enough.  This image has the caption Bernard Hermann, Rue St. Jacques

  a postcard  from the Wells Fargo Bank History Room, Russian Hill 1876 – this would be in San Francisco

  a postcard of a painting by Jacques-Henri Lartigue, title Bibi au restaurant d’Eden Roc, Cap d’Antibes, 1920

  a card from the Courtauld Institute Gallery, a painting by Pierre Bonnard (1867-1947), Young Woman in an interior, c. 1906, oil on canvas

Colleccting these images makes me want to get out my sketchbook and paints.
