Today, our postman delivered this postcard.
It shows a portrait of the distinguished veteran postman Le Père Huguenin, as photographed by the Robert Brothers of Le Locle for Theatre of the Actors of Regard.
The verso postmarks indicate the card was first sent in 1903, from Le Locle, to the writer's dear son in Germany : Cher fils Gustave...
Huguenin the intermediary fixes his gaze. To his right, he holds a small rectangular parcel; to his left, from his shoulder, he suspends a large rectangular deliveries box.

What we can add is this early photo portrait of Le Père Huguenin. Already practising his intense regard, he was known then as Le Bébé Huguenin.
