Homepage. This page: A 1920s' card designed for motoring enthusiasts for Christmas and New Year.

Christmas and New Year best wishes card.

Coincidentally this card is the first addition to the site for the new decade, and happens to be a Christmas and New Year's greetings card from the 1920s. Evidently it was designed to appeal to the motoring enthusiast. Not only does it feature an illustration of a chauffeur taking two ladies for a spin in a fine vintage car, but the verse also refers to breakdown-free motoring. It reads ...
"May you be in good running to enjoy the happiness this festive season brings, and in the New Year ne'er a breakdown."
Vintage Christmas card for motorists
This greetings card, produced by W. McKenzie & Co. of London, isn't dated, but the style of car suggests early 1920s. The lucky motorists, or aspiring motorists, to receive this card were Mr and Mrs Ernest Hawkins, sent by Mrs Alfred Roberts - perhaps a fellow motor-car owner and driver. The inside of the card includes a small painting of a snowy village scene, and a verse wishing health, happiness and prosperity to its recepient.
