There are cards from Sweden, France, and the United Kingdom; cards from Africa to Asia and beyond.
And of course, there are women. There are models, flappers, and strippers; there are blondes, brunettes, and redheads. There are women holding guns. Women in sports cars. Women wearing sombreros and pith helmets. Women encountering large exotic animals. Women reclining on shag carpets. Women dressed like Eskimos. Women posing in ways that defy description you simply have to see for yourself.
