Christmas Greetings in 1920

Seeing the old ‘Postman’ Christmas card published on the site, reminded me of the tradition in at least my family, of sending each other postcards. I have a number of old postcards sending birthday greetings but here are some examples from Christmas 1920. Cats were obviously popular with my Mother. The first one is a picture of a Cats’ party and this was sent to my Mother by a friend called Hilda who writes on the back as follows:

” Just a card hoping you have a happy Christmas. I hope your Dad is improving. With love from your loving friend Hilda”.

My Mother was nearly 14 and sadly her Father died in May 1921.
