El Cordobes (The Cordovan) was the name that the famous Matador Manuel Benitez Perez was better known as. He was a famous matador during the 1960’s who was known for bringing an unorthodox acrobatic and theatrical style to the bullring. Born in 1938 he now lives in retirement in Cordoba in near seclusion.

This postcard depicts a named bullfighter, Jaime Ostos, in a named stance. The colour has been added to this image making it extra bright and I assume appealing to the eye.

(Marcel PENDARIES, TOULOUSE)

Ref: 1677

 

The classic bull fighting image. This is an early modern postcard from 1957 (or at least I think that is the date on the reverse side of this postcard on the postmark – but it’s not fully clear).  

 

REVERSE SIDE OF ABOVE POSTCARD

 

This has a nice special hand stamp – but some weathering damage down the right side, which does not affect the front image

SEVILLA

(SEVILLE, SPAIN)

Ref: 16

 

This one is from a postcard book, it has a perforated edge down the left side. Bull fighting postcards are very popular, despite the ongoing protest, against what is called both a sport and a tradition by those who take part in it and go to the many stadiums to watch it. This is a typical postcard, and one of a type considered to be suitable for tourists.
