Signed Tunis 4-4-23

Stamped Tunesie, stamp is removed.

After the war, paper had become scarce due to the bombings and the use of firewood. Not much wood was left to produce paper so the postcards where thinner than the ones before the war.

Picture of on the other hand, shows much of detail, even the fabric of the clothing is visible.

The style of clothing is different than the clothes of Algeria. But we can clearly see the spiked bracelets used as protection against offensive admirers.

These were succesful dancers and one has an ostrich feather in her headdres while she protects herself agains the sun.

An unique piece so only shipments with proof of reception.
