This week’s Sepia Saturday 389 prompt, which shows a young girl sitting at at a desk writing, has given me a good excuse to post one of my favorite old postcards. My postcard above shows a cute little girl writing a post card to her “dear Father and Mother.” This postcard not only shows a cute little girl, but embodies two of my favorite postcard collecting themes: postcards about postcards and letter writing. In addition, the little girl reminds me of my mother’s childhood, when big hair bows were the style for little girls, and my childhood, when I had a play letter writing set with fake stamps.
Another related theme is what I call “To the Loved Ones at Home” or “To My Dear…” Several different postcard publishers issued series with cards especially for various family members, “dearest friends,” sweethearts, etc. These postcards featured designs made up of large letters and colorful flowers. A few of these cards are shown below.
