Spotlight on Grandma's Postcards - Birthday Greetings

Our family celebrated two birthdays this week (granddaughter, Esther, 5 and granddaughter, Hannah, 1), so I thought it would be appropriate to share one of Grandma's birthday postcards this week. 

Birthday Greetings

Interestingly enough, I find the message and information on the back of this card a bit odd. It is addressed to Miss Maudie McCann, McPherson, Kansas. The card is dated November 20th, 1911, but there is no stamp and no postmark. 

Perhaps whoever sent the card just liked the card, or perhaps it was the only one she had to give, but my grandmother's birthday was April the 5th (she would have turned 16-years-old in 1911). 

The sender had a fine hand and wrote a simple message:

Dearest Maudie, 

This is with love and best wishes. 

From your sister, 

My grandmother had no sister named's all a bit of a mystery to me. 

Either way, it's a pretty card and I thought it definitely worth sharing. 

Here are this week's birthday girls, Esther and Hannah.

These are two of Grandma Maudie's many great, great granddaughters. She'd be so proud! 💗

Until next time,

  1. Vintage cards from that day and time are hard to come by; Historic, and irreplaceable, to be cherished, like the memory of there original owner. Truly a window into a bygone era!
