Today is my Mother's birthday! In her honour (using her native Canadian spelling), I'm posting beautiful vintage birthday cards. They are well before her time - and most are even before HER mother's time.
"All happiness for your Birthday" mailed September 1907
"A Glad Birthday"
"My best wishes for your Birthday"
"Birthday Greeting" Mailed January 1916
"Loving Birthday Greetings" Mailed October 1911(?)
Slightly strange . . .
But this is just an awful birthday card - it does seem cards of this era sometimes relied on guilt to convey a greeting. Very odd.
"Birthday Greetings - May you never waste your time moping. Be up and doing. Smile and work" Mailed April 1918
Wishing you a beautiful birthday, Mom!!
