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…
‘We post our letters of good cheer/ Now that Christmas draws so near’ Christmas Card (Early 20th Century)
Image shows two young children posting letters in a letter box with snow on dome.
Inside is an image of children on a sledge with the Christmas Greeting ‘WISHING YOU LOTS OF FUN AND A RIGHT HAPPY CHRISTMAS.’
Handwritten dedication inside. Red cord binds card together
