I was away last weekend so managed to miss last week's Sepia Saturday, but am here and a bit early this week. Unfortunately I do not seem to have any vintage postcards which show a face close-up, so I've had to go for the full body. Also, unfortunately I don't know much about this pictures either, other than the publisher or studio name. I'm assuming these are just ordinary people as opposed to famous people, although the second one does look a bit familiar. I never realised until I put the two postcards side-by-side that the pose is almost identical, so maybe a standard of the time.
