Of all my vintage postcards, few give me less pleasure than these two images of rather disgusting babies.
This one rather eerily comes with a lock of the infants hair, presumably for future generations to clone it with. The baby in question doesn’t seem to have much hair, leading one to believe that perhaps this lock comes form some other anonymous person/animal. On the other hand, maybe they shaved the baby especially, and I’m just being overly suspicious.
As for this ghastly image, I almost shrink from contemplating it. The lurid hand colouring and the hastily painted background add to it’s darkly hallucinatory quality, looking at it makes me feel all prickly and clammy. Yuck.
