"A Happy Birthday"

“Sunshine passes, shadows fall,

My remembrance outlasts all."

 

Well, that’s a bit grim for birthday wishes, I think, but the sentiment is sweet.

The birds' wings are made of blue ribbon. Written on the back: "2-22-21 Dear Cousin We hope you will have a happy birthday from Alice & Lois” and it’s addressed to Miss Alta Lebo in Decature, Ill, but not mailed.

 

I bought a large lot of postcards recently and many bear the same names, it’s clear that someone in the Lebo family saved postcards.
