There are cards that are personalized. "A" for Arnold (my maiden name) with personalized insides. Mr. & Mrs. S. Arnold - that was Sydney Arnold, my great-uncle, who is the husband to the great-aunt as above. You can see the date on this 1st card. "1913" The Santa card in the bottom middle is "3D". It is very delicate and flimsy - this one for sure I don't like handling too much. It's very cute! (The picture doesn't do it justice.)
There are stamps on some of the post cards. "July 23, 1905" - cool huh?
An invitation to a party. March 20th, 1924 at 8:15 pm....who starts a party at 8:15 pm??? I guess they were very precise back then as to when they wanted to 'get this party started' huh? 75 cents got you a 'musical program, dancing and cards'...sounds like a good deal to me! The bottom left post card is from the "Doodledoo's"....who the heck were the "Doodledoo's"???? The middle card with the kitty on front has a little story inside - cute! And the bottom right is a post card advertisement looking for mail order brides. It says "Why don't you marry a millionaire by parcel post?" If only it was really that simple....am I right ladies?!!??
So those are just a few cards from my cherished antique cards - I think they are quite interesting to look at and thought I would share!
