The Pforzheim Album 7
Do we have a wedding? That would be my best guess on the top postcard. Still, since all but two of the women are wearing the same white dress, I have some doubt. Note the accordions in the front. There is a photographer's stamp on the back, "Hubert Gombert, Buhl I.B." I ran Mr. Gombert's name and found some commercially produced cards, all scenes of Buhl, for sale, at 19 Euros. I guess the European economy is doing better than I thought. Buhl, like Pforzheim is a town in Baden-Wurttemberg in southwest Germany.
As far as card number two, Frieda Meyer and Else Huck are exchanging pictures. School pictures I think. My other guess would be conformation photos, but wouldn't young Else be in white for that? Or is it young Frieda? I did try doing a search on those names but came up with nothing.
