Description:

A W&K Post Card; part of Series 5145 and printed in London, E.C. It shows a bouquet of flowers with a poem below. It reads:

“Birthday Wishes. If when you awake to-day you see, A host of greetings waiting, To wish you all the best of luck, In every undertaking, Then will to-day your Birthday be, All that I hope it may, A day of joy and happiness, In every kind of way. Syd.”

The stamp is a bright scarlet, King George V, one penny (1d) from the 1912-24 issues. It is in good condition, albeit with slightly wonky placement. The partial circular date stamp comes from August 11th, 1925, from thee Little Houghton, Northampton, office.

Addressed to: “Miss B Dixon, Nr Church, Grendon, Northants, Local.” Grendon is approximately 4.7 miles from Little Houghton as the crow flies, or 6.5 miles by road (2021).

The message reads “Just to wish you many happy returns. Hope Dad and Dot (?) got home alright. From C. C. & Baby”
