In 1901, Caruso’s lover Ada Balducci used this postcard as a quick, easy way to send a message and update, as we use text messages, Snapchat, and Twitter today. The "women and fashion" section of the collection speaks to images of women in popular culture. Women rode bicycles, played sports and lived active lives—all portrayed in this collection. Most postcards circulating in the U.S. were designed and printed abroad; it’s interesting to think about how fashions in Europe influenced American women.
