Birthday Greetings

Description

[Image: On the top third of this vertical postcard a girl is standing next to a woman with white hair. The girl is looking at the woman while the woman looks at a portrait of a man in suit and cravat. Under the portrait is a plant stand with a green vase and three yellow daisies. The woman has her hair in a bun with a hair pin sticking out of the bun, three-quarters length yellow dress that has a full (nearly hooped-skirt) look. The dress is trimmed in white bows. The girl has a blond bobbed hairstyle, a shapeless purple dress, green knee socks and black flat shoes. The man in the portrait has white hair parted down the middle and combed to each side equally, a purple cravat with pin, and a green suit coat. Below the private scene, the card reads: However many birthdays
Within your past is hid,
One wouldn’t think to look at you
That you could vote, old kid.]
Print, color on cream cardstock, 14 x 9 cm.
