Description:

Birthday postcard; portrait of young woman in dress, with flowers.

The obverse shows a young lady with a bouquet of flower and light dress. The text reads: “With loving birthday wishes” and the poem: “Your days be bright and joyous all, But this one marked and set apart, By rarest joys that ever fall, In blessings on the heart.”

Reference code H. 2053/3 is included in the lower left corner under a shied containing the monogram WH.

The reverse has printed along the right side: “Real Photograph hand-painted. A. H. Smith, Northampton”. Includes descriptor “POST CARD” and dividing text. The right states “Reserved for Written Matter” whilst the left states “Reserved for address”

The postcard itself is addressed to “Miss E Knight, 83 Moore street, Kingsley Park, Local”. The message reads ”Dear Emily. With my best wishes for a very happy birthday. With love from Annie.”

Half-penny postage is affixed and canceled with long waves and the centre mark of “NORTHAMPTON” at an unknown time “? AM” plus a partial date “3 FEB ??”. Possible 1918, 1928 or 1926.

Generally a lovely postcard and message, and plenty to do in terms of further research.
