In Mikey's Pompiers thread, we ended up discussing other pictures that might exist of the series "Femmes de l'Avenir"

Well in a quiet moment at work this morning I did some searching, and I found these on www.delcampe.net ...



























Discutez!

Interesting to think that these back in the early 1900's, women in these occupations were thought to be some kind of fantasy... 100 years later it's normal!

I suppose it's possible that somewhere in this collection, there would be poses depicting railway workers of some kind!

Nice find Clive! In their time they would have been every frenchmans ultimate fantasy and today still are for some!!

cant help thinking that 'Le docteur' looks like Johnny Depp as Willie Wonka!!

Brilliant.

I looked all over the net for these without success.

Somebody French must be able to explain this 'farce' better. If not I will take it to the college and see what the history teachers make of it.

Found a few more :











Apparently these are a series of 20 - which means I am missing 2 from the complete set! Anyone? The postcard depicting the 3 Zouaves is not part of this series it seems - although plainly it has originated from the same studio.

Apologies, I need to correct my mathematics, it seems - there are 17 cards on here not counting the one of the 3 Zouaves, plus the pompier and the single Zuave of dubious gender on Mikey's thread, make 19 not 18! So, what is the one we are missing I wonder?
