Happy Easter to the Jenkins Family

Happy Easter to the Jenkins Family

Mrs. J.W. Downham of Viola Delaware mailed this old Easter postcard to Mary Jenkins of Woodside Delaware on April 4, 1908. Springtime, new life and the wonder of it all adorns this old beauty. Not much of a sentiment on the reverse though... Mrs Downham had invited Mary to "a special display of millinery in my parlor". Maybe that was the Victorian's version of a Tupperware Party. Do they still have Tupperware Parties?

Florence sent this Easter card from Dover Delaware to Mary Jenkins. The embossed card distorted the postmark, but it looks like it was sent in 1908 or 1909. Agnes is Mary's daughter.

Another old Easter card, this one sent to Glancy Jenkins on March 25, 1910. Glancy Jenkins would grow up and he and his wife, Elsie would take over operations at the Jenkins Store in Woodside.
