I decided to show you my late mother's scrapbook. She started it when she got engaged to my Dad back in 1942 and saved all the cards, notes, and telegrams that he sent her while he was away in the war. It starts out with little cards congratulating her on her engagement, goes on to all her wedding cards, Valentine, Christmas, and anniversary cards and finally to birth announcements and cards of congratulations on the birth of my older sister.
It's interesting to look back at the style of cards people sent then. There were the usual neutral ones along with humorous and romantic ones. Dad even sent cards to my sister when he was away and Mom carefully tucked them inside this scrapbook. She saved this book and all its contents and now I have the honour of keeping it for future generations to see. Hope you enjoy the photos.
