Wish You Were Here, from Grace Drayton


I love these Grace Drayton cards from Reinthal & Newman; this particular series has wonderful gags, so unexpectedly earthy in light of those cherubic little Campbell’s Kids. 

This card is undated, but postally used in 1916. The card was mailed in Scotland, and I love the similarly earthy message written in a childish scrawl; “Thank you very much for the nice rock. With love from May.” I’m sure the recipient, Miss Muriel Perry, was delighted that her gift of a rock was well-received.
