Postcard Friday - On the Hearthrug

A couple more of those strange European postcards, showing happy scenes of family life. In the picture above, Granny and Grandpa are in their dressing gowns, as they have forgotten to get dressed. Instead, Granny is criticising the stitch quality of Mama's crochet work, and Grandpa is trying to recommend the benefits of pipe-smoking for toddlers. Papa, pushed to the floor, lashes out with his feet, in an attempt to knock the pipe from the old man's hand. Ummm, yes, I'm pretty sure that's what happening.

But hang on a moment! In the next photo, on the other end of the hearthrug, Mama has changed her dress and taken up with a new man.
She also has a new child. But the same plastic skittles. And is new Papa wearing a see-through shirt?? Oh, those continentals!
