Postcard, ca. 1907

I found this little gem in a box labelled "Glamour", and it is clearly a publicity photo of an actress or some other kind of performer.  Unfortunately her name doesn't appear on the postcard so I can't identify her.  However she makes a pretty picture in her elaborate Edwardian evening dress, and the postmark on the postcard dates it to around 1907.  (This "Carte Postale" was originally published in France and the message on the back is written in French.  I wonder how it wound up in a bookshop in Melbourne?)
