In the lead-up to Christmas we are showcasing some of the festive items in our collection across our social networks. Behind the door of our virtual advent calendar today is…
Christmas Card: Good Wishes (c. 1860)
Printed Christmas Card with an image depicting a small child trying to reach the aperture of a first national standard pillar box. Beneath the picture: ‘I tarn’t [sic] reach – Christmas Eve’.
Inside two seasonal verses four lines each ‘With all good wishes’.
See a larger version of this and all the other items in our Virtual Advent Calendar on Flickr.
