Hello everyone I have this cannister with "postcards". They look like rice grain, but they are postcards.(unfortunately all the same)
They are about 7 mm long, a miniature postcard from Boulogne Sur Mer (1910-1920) is shown. 6 little pictures making a postcard, pictures of the harbour, Cathedrale etc.(a set up you see regularly on postcards of that era)
You hold the card to the light and look through the side which is round. this works like a magnifier and you can see the picture inside really well.
A good picture is impossible as you understand.
Question 1: Does anyone have a simular example of another town, city, event.
Question 2: What would the correct name for this kind of postcard be?
