Another in the set of Maher Postcards, this one has a design on the front featuring pink and red roses with gilded accents and a message that reads “A Happy Birthday” in red ink. A delicately gilded heart that looks like a small mirror sits just left of center.
Addressed to Lee Maher, and missing a stamp, this postcard is from his aunt Stella, his mother’s sister. The writer is wishing him a happy 6th birthday and since part of the cancellation stamp is unclear, that helps tremendously to show this was sent 27 December 1909 (Lee was born 27 December 1903). Here’s the message:
“Hello Lee, So today you are 6 years old, soon to be a man. What did Santa bring you for Christmas. Goodbye, from your Aunt Stella.”
The only identifying marks on the back is that it’s Serie 1600b and printed in Germany. A quick image search didn’t turn up any duplicates using those details.
