Italian Postcards

Figure 1.--This Italian postcard is a good example of the complications involved in using postcards to study fahion trends. THis Italian made card was postally used in the Netherlands, but does not seem to show Austrian or German clothes.

We have very limited information on Italian postcards at this time. We do know that they did exist. We have seen Itlaian post cards with both Itlaian themes and cards made for export markets. We believe that Italy must have had a very large postcard industry, but have few details at this time. The limited number of Italian postcards we have acquired make it difficult to assess the country's postcard industry.
