Haworth, UK

Charlotte Brontë was married in 1854 but died of complications due to pregnancy less than nine months later. She was 38.

A reënactment of her wedding was held a few years ago in Haworth (how convenient to have an occasion to use a diaeresis!). I could not spot the wreath as it is masked by the veil in all the online photos, but I’m sure it was rendered faithfully.

Location unknown, Mexico

Based on the small sample I’ve encountered, Mexican postcards are quite underrated (Listen to me – as if I even know who rates postcards). Nice rounded corners, san-serif fonts and bright hues. The rounded corners do not photograph well. This one was mailed to me by a friend in San Francisco and it looks like it had a difficult journey.
