Vintage Postcard Images from My Personal Collection Of Antique Postards - Children

Dainty children wearing lacy frocks and bright hair bows were very popular on antique postcards. These children are nothing like today's rough and tumble kids. I wonder how their mothers kept their white dresses clean! The cards in this hub all contain images of long ago children. Enjoy!

Two Tuck's Postcards With Children

The next two cards are by the much respected Tuck's company. On the back of these postcards is printed "Raphael Tuck and Sons" "Birthday Postcards Series 105" and below that it says "Art publishers to their majesties the King and Queen". Cards by this manufacturer are much sought after and usually carry a higher price. One of these is dated 1914.

Children with Flowers

The next two cards have only the markings "916" on the back and one is postmarked 1913.
