Women dancing ‘The Tango’ one of a set of early 20th century postcards, 1913?
Ray Batchelor writes:
“The artwork for this postcard is by Luiz Usabal Y Hernandez.
Downloaded from a website, Tuck DB Postcards, dedicated to selling [reproductions?] of postcards from the London-based Postcard Producer, Raphael Tuck and Sons. On the website, it says this is one of a set of 6 cards. The other five show conventional man-woman pairings:
Set Title: THE "TANGO" SERIES III
CONNOISSEUR, PROCESSED IN GERMANY
Sold As: set of 6 cards
Where Sold: United States of America
The suspicion that this – like many other, similar historical postcards falls into the voyeuristist, straight eroticism category referred to in the wikipedia article https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Queer_Tango [18 Feb 2016] is never far away. Maybe 1913?
Compare this with 000057 and 000033, by the same artist and one imagines, towards the same ends”
