Two Postcards That Some Children Might Like


Postcard sent by Laura (the UK). It seems a real house, but it is actually one of the 100 dolls' houses kept in the Victoria & Albert Museum of Childhood, in London (the UK): the Whiteladies House, made of wood in 1935, by Moray Thomas.



Postcard sent by Gian Luca (Italy). It shows the village of Vernante, in Italy. If you visit it, you will find most of the houses covered with wall paintings, depicting scenes from the novel The Adventures of Pinocchio (by Italian author Carlo Collodi). Attilio Mussino, the illustrator of the 1911 edition of this book, used to live there.

I added this post to Maria's linky. This week the theme is Children.

  1. How great to have a village with lots of wall paintings from a children's story book. I'd love to visit it.

  3. Who knew the V&A had a 100 dolls houses. I'd have liked that one as a child.

  4. This second postcard reminds me of my want to revisit this children's classic Pinocchio. I believe that the story I've read as a child is very much an abridged version and that I'm missing out on the rest of it.

    1. It happened the same here. A friend of mine translated the story some years ago, and when I read the whole version, I liked it very much. Very different from what I recalled from my childhood...

  5. Hi Eva, Thank you for your kind comment on my vintage postcards. I found the topic "child/children" to be mostly missing in my collection. Your choices here are better. :-) Thanks for joining in on the linky.

    1. Also I don't have a lot of children in my collection, so I chose two children-related postcards. Thanks for your comment, I'm glad you visit the blog!
