For today's vintage postcard blog post I have decided to take a break from UK topographical cards and switched theme to greetings postcards, and specifically those containing horseshoes. I particularly like the first one because of its subtle use of colouring ... I've saved you from those which are a bit garish and over the top.
What's interesting though is that the horseshoes are all upsidedown. As a young child I was always told that horseshoes should be displayed the other way up to hold the good luck in ... and I guess if they are used as door knockers then they wouldn't work too well.
As usual, vintage postcards like these and 100's of others can be found on my vintage postcards web site
