……..just now exploring your site.
Am impressed. Would like to see your “found”
images of pre-1914 Central Europe/Ruritania.
I’ve snapped up MANY pics—actually mostly
postcards—from eBay. Wonderful, so-called
romantic images of Imperial Germany, in much
of its splendid diversity. Am always on the
lookout for rural/forests, farms, towns……
and of course, the Emperor and Germany’s
powerfully dynamic and expanding Kulture.
Every week I type in “Germany 1913”, or “Kaiser
Wilhelm”, etc., and there they are………..

Let us imagine an old postcard image of Flavia, with her monochromatic face from old photography touched up with rosy colors in her cheeks. I’ve responded to your other comment in the Ruritania post.
