Vintage Clothing Can Tell Us A Story

Thursday picked up another 100 plus post cards. Many holiday and a few real photo post cards.
Here is two photo post cards with interesting clothing.
No hints to who they were or where they lived.
That is part of the mystery
Will be added to my eBay store in the future.
If you have any idea to what kind of clothing the children are wearing  I would love to hear your ideas.
Note the fringe on the man's jacket, scarf around his neck and his hat.

Friendship Friday is here again and today I am sharing some of my vintage Thanksgiving postcards. They are all from the early 1900s and picture fat Turkeys and have a feeling of quiet times with family. Today it seems Thanksgiving is all about football and hurry off to shop at the stores.
I think I would rather sit back and have a nice dinner and visit with my family. I can shop another day.
Enjoy a peek into the past with my vintage postcards. They are up for sale on eBay along with a few others.

THURSDAY POSTCARD TRAVELS Piccadilly Circle London England

Today for Thursday Postcard Travels I am sharing another vintage postcard of London England. This one is of Piccadilly Circus which is a busy center of traffic at the intersection of Regent street, whence the wide Shaftesbury Avenue leads to the northeast.

The triangle in the center of the circus is occupied by a memorial fountain to Lord Shaftesbury, which was unveiled in 1893. It is adorned with eight plaques of scenes from the philanthropists life.

Thanks for visiting Thursdays Postcard Travels. Grace
