Vintage Postcards and People ;)))) Happy Birthday, All You Holiday Babies!

Today is my hub's birthday. I always tease him that he was a Christmas or New Year's present. ;)

Last week during all of the rummaging in the family paperwork, I found this cute birthday postcard that my hub received when he was only eight years old in 1953:

The googly eyes still move.

Speaking of googly, Google is celebrating its 15th birthday today, too. Wonder when that idea was conceived?

And here are two postcards that my MIL received while she was on a camping vacation in 1930:

I think this one was from her boyfriend.

And this one was from her little cousins.

Here is a precious postcard to my MIL from her aunt. 

No date, since you can see that my MIL snipped off the stamp in the top right corner. Early 1900's anyway.

While we are postcarding (almost all old postcards are worth between 5-10 dollars), here are two funny ones:

Very tactile. Each garment piece has a different layer and different texture. It looks really old! Love that face. What is in her left hand?

And what about this view of the Loreley on the Rhine River? Could this be the original Sirens? I must use Google Translate to find out what this postcard says.

This last postcard just must be worth more than $10.00! Some Boy Scout collector would probably love to have this postcard of Lord Baden Powell that my MIL received back when.

Hope you enjoyed the postcard show. I have more, but these were my favorite.
