Monday, Dec. 19th...the countdown to Christmas Day. I love vintage graphics..actually I love almost anything old. This postcard was mailed on Dec. 23, 1931 to Mr. Archie Cone, Rt. 5, Elk Mound, WI. It has a one cent stamp on the back and says, "all best wishes to you. Elmer was accidently shot through the right hand last Sunday. Otherwise all is well. Love from Della". Message aside, I love the little blond guy with his button back pajamas with the button drop seat..*VBS* Hope "all is well" with each of you today..*S* Posted by Picasa

amazing how being shot in the hand was hardly newsworthy! Like you the old PJ's are a real draw on the card. Thanks for it. I have a large collection of valentine's cards through the years, but not so many christmas...

I always wondered where you got all these vintage pictures. And I guess it could be looked at as mean - but the message on the post card is kind of funny! I wonder how Elmer accidently got shot in the hand?
