Postcards is a web site for collectors of stamps, badges, pins. documents, the occasional old beret and, among other collection-able materials, postcards.
From a pre-email era, I found an enormous collection of beret-related postcards, mostly from the early 20th century, a few from the second half of that century. 
Beautiful scenes, the berets as interesting as the backgrounds and environments; whether it is the street without traffic, the fishermen on the beach
or a Basque Frenchman making soup,
or photographs in Paris' Jardin du Luxembourg,
they are evidence of a bygone era.
