Picture postcard showing a young Normandy woman in traditional dress, embracing a child in similar costume. The message from a British soldier, George Ranstead who drew a large number of postcards during World War I, comments on how strange they look in their bonnets. It reads: "Jeannie dear, this is a type of the Normandy style of people. They look very strange in these bonnets too."
