A share from my personal collection of vintage treasures today is a 1905 postcard of the British dancer and stage actress Mabel Love (1874-1953) who was considered to be one of the great stage beauties of her age.
The postcard shows a side shot of Mabel wearing an off-the-shoulder dress with flowers on the right-hand side of the photograph.
This is my original scan:

This is the back of the postcard with stamp and date:
Mabel Love must have been a very popular woman because In 1894, Winston Churchill wrote to her asking for a signed photograph!
