Mildred's Birthday 1945

Ivor was a man of few words. He let this beautiful card tell the story of his love and birthday wishes for his wife while they were separated by a continent. The discoloration of the card comes from a silky material inset for the lampshade.


  1. How touching, how beautiful. I am glad you saved Ivor's beautiful cards, the story of a real romance from long ago. I'm deeply touched by their lives as I see it unfold in these cards.

  2. Wow, one word, Touching! I thank you for sharing these pieces of our treasured past. If people don't save them, they will be lost forever. By placing your wonderful card collection, they are ensured to grace many many viewers for a long long time! Thank You! I can't wait to see what's next!. Love and Light, Nina
