I was particularly pleased with this postcard, which was inside one of the John & Mary books by Grace James. It’s dated 1947 and is postmarked Newbury, near to where the fictional John & Mary lived. As if that weren’t enough, it’s addressed to ‘Master John’.
Turn it over and you have a Mabel Lucy Attwell picture. This was obviously carefully chosen, as the writer of the card hopes ‘the onion seed’ will grow for John. What a fascinating glimpse into someone’s life. I do hope John enjoyed the book.
