I have a few paper-based collections, not counting shelves full of old books: a few original nineteenth-century coaching prints (which are framed and hanging in our living room), quite a number of original orange-crate labels (some of which are framed and hanging in our kitchen, and the rest of which are destined for the walls of another room), and a small but growing collection of old Christmas postcards with pictures of horse-drawn vehicles.

My plan for these postcards is to put them in small frames and use them as Christmas decorations. But that hasn’t happened yet, which means they’re still easily scan-able … so I’m going to share them with you here. And today is a good day to start this project, I figure, as we’re ONLY TWO WEEKS away from Christmas!

This first one is actually an undated card, not a postcard, but it does feature of lovely pair of Art Deco horses.
