Sailor Boy Postcard Vintage 1920s Tuck Christmas Card
This 1920s Tuck Postcard shows a young barefoot lad dressed in a sailor suit and hat holding his sand pail. Typical Christmas scene - not!
This is a Raphael Tuck Artistic Series 5051 card with lovely color.
The card measures 3-1/4 inches (8.3 cm) wide by 5 inches (13 cm) high. The reverse has a poem by Helen Marion Burnside. Also, someone has written in ink, 'Joe'. The card has only minor edge and corner wear and a few tiny stains. At one point it had been glued into an album (but the glue marks do not show through to the front of the card).
He sure is sweet - perhaps he could be a focal point in your collage, scrapbook, or maybe he could be part of your postcard collection.
The card comes from my smoke free home in Ontario, Canada.
