Romanticism Around the Turn of the Century
In this sense, we speak of Romanticism as the overarching term to describe the public perceptions of Romance, Relationships, and Public Affection, which are all very different now than they were in the early 1900s. The social concept of Love is one that also markedly changed as the 20th century progressed. Between the years 1900 and 1925, to put these ideas into perspective, saw the cure of syphilis, the coining of birth control, and also the outlaw of oral sex. In the selected postcards, we strive to showcase the context in which these postcards existed.
