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."|
|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.|
