Who Were They?

Lost and forgotten photos from the past


Ring the bells, little angel

This pretty, silvered card brings the wish of A Merry Christmas, brought by an angel ringing bells, surrounded by holly and ribbons. The cherub is alone in her quest to ring in the holiday, but my guess is, still successful. The card was mailed in December 1909, but due to the heavy embossing, the postmark is not clear and we can’t get the date.


The card was mailed to Miss Nellie Metcalf of Los Angeles, CA. (The irony here being that I live close to Los Angeles, but bought this card in Tennessee lol.) The note reads:

Dear Nellie,

With a g???? & wishes of a Merry Xmas & Happy New Year. All are well. Wish you could be with us Xmas.

Lovingly, Aunt Mira
