Zeeland Girls

Hell's Angels

Environmentalist Stamps from the NetherlandsThis vintage image of two girls in traditional Zeeland dress, inexplicably on motorcycles, is a modern reproduction by Art Unlimited and arrived today from Jet, taking only eight days from the city of Zwolle in the Netherlands.

The province of Zeeland is a collection of islands that were apparently difficult to reach until the early 20th century; I’m sure the photographer found humorous this juxtaposition of old and (what was then) new.

    Hello chris,
    Ces deux filles sur motos ressemblent à deux bonnes-soeurs (nuns), ou est-ce un costume local ?
    si c’est un costume local, il ressemble, un peu, à celui de l’Alsace (Alsatian ?).
    en tout cas, une superbe photo typique…

    The flying-nun habits could lead to flying motorbikes.

    This was really funny paired with the following postcard from New Zealand.
