This most beautiful old card is 92 years old and it was given to me by a very dear lady Sue Ward to whom I am extremely grateful, it arrived this morning and I carefully opened it and then just sat in awe.
It will be highly treasured. Thank you Sue.
Sue has Kindly allowed me to tell the story of the card.
"It is a small ( smaller than A6) Christmas card dated 1916 and it has the original envelope... although it is a bit worse for wear...and addressed to my "gran and grandad." The card is cream and I think the aperture sentiment is printed on lavender silk. A bit about how I came to have it. When I was 5 I was fostered by a couple with the surname Trigg...who I considered to be my "Mam and Dad" The rest of their family...bar a very few...didn't consider me as part of the family. They are no longer with us, and after they died the rest of the family, after picking over the belongings left me with a few precious photo's and this card. I did ask about it, and was told that it came from an uncle and no one seemed bothered about it. I've hung on to it because although it doesn't have any real family connection to me, I didn't like to throw it out but I'm afraid that one day that might just happen...as obviously none of my children have any connection to it.
