I giggled when I read the note on the back of this lovely Christmas postcard. It is addressed to Miss Mary Kersam, and the message goes like this:
When Mary walks abroad up North
She looks so sweet and gay
She has to put on lip-salve
To keep the chaps away
The fellow who wrote this poem was clearly smitten. Fittingly, this fair lady, awaiting a kiss beneath the mistletoe, has donned a dress with a sleeve in the perfect shape of a heart.
