On The Cards – Greetings From The Sixties
The greeting card ritual can be traced way back to the ancient Chinese who exchanged good will messages for the New Year. By the 15th century the custom of sending cards continued throughout Europe. One of the first examples of a Valentine’s Day card is currently displayed in the British Museum in London.
Here we have a collection of groovy greetings cards from the swinging sixties that escaped the bin and found their way to the loft or thrift store, then the world wide web.
Happy Viewing and all the best from Voices of East Anglia
