I have curly hair, and have yet to learn to love it. I still don’t even know how to style it correctly. So, when I saw this postcard in Paper Memories, a small ephemera shop in Roanoke, I knew I had to buy it as a constant reminder to myself that all the girls in the 19th and early 20th century wanted curly hair. Plus, the photograph is cute, along with the annoying upside down message on the verso. Based on the stamp, it dates between 1905 and 1911. Looking at the clothing in the photograph, the postcard dates to around 1909. Great Britain’s own Edward VII (reigned from 1901-1910) is featured on the stamp.
