This landscape postcard was sent to Enrico Caruso by his common law wife, Ada Giachetti, in 1900. "Landscape and flower" postcards show rustic country sides, leafy orchards and bouquet after bouquet of flowers. These images tend to evoke the romance of nature and the beauty of an isolated spot. Typically, these cards were sent to Caruso by female friends. The "landscape and flower" postcards represent an interesting interaction between the rustic appeal of nature and the “new” technology of the postcard.
