COLLECTION #25: Victorian Postcards
These lovely uncirculated postcards came from a former neighbor up the street who had a collection of hundreds of these cards. Although not specifically my taste, I've enjoyed having them as part of my ephemera collection, and love the beautiful flowers, birds, and other Victorian inspired artwork. I seemed to have acquired a high percentage of pansies. Perhaps there is some subliminal force there, as pansies remind me of my childhood, and are one of my favorite flowers. Apparently the Victorians loved them too.
