Play on! Vintage Women in Sports Postcards

These postcards were mailed between 1911-13.  Some appear to be hand-colored. Quite surprised at the variety of sports portrayed for the time period. The well-bundled ice skater has carved ‘Dearest’ in the ice with a Love in Cold Storage title, but the other ladies look ready to row, ride and play. And yes, the cards are from a woman to a long distance beau. I wonder if she was modern and spunky? By the time I had put on all of the intricate pieces Motor Girl (© 1908) has in her ensemble, I’d be soooo late for carpool. . .
