Vintage Easter Cheer 4U

Easter Cheer, 4U

Easter Cheer, 4U, 1908

This is one of my favorite Easter cards, probably because it makes no sense to me. What does a fast-driving crow have to do with Easter? Maybe it’s word play on “Easter bonnet”? – I don’t get it.

It was sent to my Grandfather Roy, Ola, postmarked Boise, April 13, 1908; postmarked Emmett, April 15, 1908; postmarked Ola, April 15, 1908. Note written around the circle on front of card: “this is you and your wife.” Unsigned. This was seven years before Roy and Alma married, so I’m guessing it is from his younger sister, who seemed to enjoy teasing him.
