It was exactly one year ago today that I did a post on my vintage Christmas postcards, if you care to go back and look at those cards, click right here. I collected these cards for a few years, they really are so pretty and every so often I just like to take them out and have a look.
The postcards with artwork by Ellen Clapsaddle were always my favorite - the children are always so sweet.
This card has no postmark but it is written on - it was written to Mary in Kokomo, Indiana from her "bro and sis" - Jack and Pearl. It has a one cent stamp.
Another Clapsaddle card that was exchanged between friends, from Herbert to Miss Nellie Otto.
This Clapsaddle has the cutest message, I had to scan it too..
I wonder how long it took this card to travel all the way from Ontario to Florida back in 1922..
If you check out my post from last year, there's a card there from the same series as this one. This card was written from Willa to Eleanor Blanchard.
This card was postmarked in 1916 from Gramma to Mr. Le Mallett
This card is probably the newest one out of this lot, it is postmarked 1924 and sent to an address in Clarksville, Iowa.
I think this one is so cute - looks at his little toolbox, he really wants Santa to know where he is. This card was postmarked 1913 and sent from Uncle Axel to Master Gordon Wrigel in St. Paul, Minnesota
This one is what you call an undivided card - there are no divisions on the back for the message and address - it was postmarked 1906 from Bellows Falls, VT and sent to Winchendon, MA - from Aunt E to Master Dexter Whittermore.
This card is really cute too - it's a Whitney card.
This card was never postmarked, it must have been hand delivered from Aunt Lillian to Russel.
Don't you wish you could look in your mailbox tomorrow and find a card or two like any of these?
I'm linking this post over at Dawn's party that has a new name this week -We Call it Junkin
