Easter Greetings from Aunt Annie
Young Ruth Hammond in Laconia, New Hampshire was fortunate enough to receive this lovely embossed postcard from her Aunt Annie in Lynn, Massachusetts, back in 1912. It’s postmarked April 5, 1912 at 4 P.M., a Friday, and Easter was the following Sunday, April 7 — but I’ll bet anything that Ruth received this postcard in time. My own children received some more modern Easter greeting cards from my mother yesterday; I like postcards better. It’s too bad that they don’t really make cards like this anymore.
Be sure to check out this week’s Postcard Friendship Friday for more Easter greetings, and other postcards from times gone by.
