Sepia Saturday 196 - mother's nurse

I don't have anything related to a doctor to share, but I do have a nurse related, vintage postcard, so I'm almost on theme for this week's Sepia Saturday. The postcard was published by Raphael Tuck in the Flemish Cottage Homes Series III, and the postcard artist is J.A.Heyermans. I would have thought that Flemish Cottage Homes was quite a small niche, but as this would seem to be from the 3rd series, then I guess it was more mainstream in 1905 when the postcard was published.

Sepia Saturday 195 - Peace

Again, it's a bit scary how quickly the weeks fly by, but good that it's the weekend. This week's Sepia Saturday had me rummaging through a few old magazines, but eventually I decided, yet again, on old postcards, and the theme of peace.

Sepia Saturday 194 - Flags of the League of Nations

I don't have any pictures of items related to sewing, but I do have flags to contribute to this week's Sepia Saturday. These are cigarette cards given away with John Player cigarettes as part of the Flags of the League of Nations series. The series of 50 cards was published in 1928.

Sepia Saturday 193 - alone in a boat

This week's Sepia Saturday post of a person alone in a boat had me rummaging through my vintage postcards to find something on a similar theme. I ended up being surprised that I actually had a few which fitted the bill.
