Postcard Expo

“Wish you weren’t here” might be the message on a postcard such as this one commemorating one of the great floods of the Seine. As for the one at right–I’m at a loss for a great caption (suggestions welcome!). I love postcards, especially (almost exclusively) the ones that don’t glamorize the subject. For fellow fans, there’s a huge vintage postcard expo taking place. January 11-13 in the 17th arrondissement. The site for the annual event has details in English, and you can get a half-price ticket (4 euros instead of eight) by downloading this pdf. (Merci to the consistently fascinating Invisible Paris for the tip.)
