The title says something along the lines of “Oléron Island – Coming upon an undressing on the sea shore“. I find this postcard quite interesting. First even if it looks like a voyeur picture, we have to assume that it is staged. I seriously doubt that cameras a century ago could take quick snapshots and surprise people like this. Also, I assume that the picture is supposed to be sexy or even a bit erotic. The contrast with nowadays sexy and eroticism is quite striking. Finally, despite the risqué nature of the picture, it was a postcard. Which is a bit surprising on the one hand, but when you think about it, even nowadays in tourist stores one can find postcards with people (usually women) wearing little to no clothes.
