Rare collectable black & white French postcard with imagery by G. Franjou entitled "AY". Caption reads, "AY en 1610 (d'apres une gravure de Tassia)". Ay is most famous as a centre of the production of champagne and is located within the Marne department in northern France. Also stated on the card is "Photo by G. Franjou, à Ay - Repr. int." whereby "Repr. int." means "reproduction is disallowed" or "not to be reproduced". This antique postcard is original and in unused condition. We've managed to uncover at least two similar postcards online, neither of which have produced an image of the reverse side. Age: Early 1900's, pre WW2
Condition: Corners are slightly rounded now due to handling, storage etc. but in very fine condition otherwise.
