During the early 20th century, postcards were a most popular method of communication, with just enough room to write a little note to a friend, family member, lover or neighbor. They were so popular that millions of cards crossed through the mails.
The halls are decked with holly. And this darling little miss is on her way up the stairs to bed with her teddy and her baby doll, carrying a candle to light her way. Alas, if she had only turned around, she'd have found Santa Nicholas with a bundle of toys flung on his back, ready to come down chimney with a bound, once she is snuggled asleep in her bed.
The inside is blank for you to write your own holiday inspired holiday message.
On the front, it reads:
Always an appropriate wish this time of year.
On the back of the card is the image of the message on the original postcard (see our second photo). It was sent from the small town of Hunter, New York to:
Miss Lila Davast
The message read:
Best Xmas Wishes
This, to us, is great news...that you can still find vintage postcards like this for a bargain...just keep looking.
This modern reproduction greeting card measures 5 inches by 7 inches and arrives with an appropriate white envelope.
