I love these old postcards - especially the lettering handiwork. I'd like to recommend Gert Wiescher's Cacao.

Edit: Cacao appears in the Solotype Catalog as Kingsland (Gloriosky), pg. 102.

Reminds me a bit of the less informal, but time-appropriate Auriol and GLC's rougher version, 1906 Fantasio Auriol.

Oh, and then there's also the 1890's typeface Boomerang and its bold italic version, Regina Cursiv (note the similar Toffee Script).

Boomerang and Regina Cursiv work for me....

The gestalt of this loose and creamy lettering is with Boomerang and Regina Cursiv. We can make it a trilogy by adding Karolla

Perhaps we can expand the blobby trinity to a foursome with Ivan Zemtsov
