A typical early 2oth century card sent to Pearlie's mother.
This postcard was sent to Pearlie in 1940. She would have been 14 and was staying for Christmas at her future husband's home, this very house I'm sitting in now. They were, in the parlance of the time, 'far out friends'. Pearlie was already in love. Johnny at 20 years of age was, most likely, oblivious to her feelings.
A card dating from the 1930s sent to the Hillis family. Note that the rustic character is smoking. Quelle horreur!
A modern card sent to Nelly from Ganching, Christmas 2008.
