Postcard Friendship Friday

I know nothing about this wonderful old postcard and there is no image of the back.  However, I think this must be gracious living at its finest.  The lady seated at the right seems to be almost highlighted and she surely is the birthday girl in the photo.  The message written on the card is -

"This is my class taken at my home on my 60th birthday.  Always remember the fine happy hours and always remain as chaste and good as you are today.  Your motherly friend."

I wonder what her class was about.  Maybe she was a piano teacher or voice coach.  It's for sure we'll never know! 

This seens like  an appropriate card for me to post since my daughter celebrated her 60th birthday on Wednesday.   Some wishes---Happy Father's Day to all the dads, grandpas, uncles and husbands!!  And Happy PFF - check out for more postcards listed on Beth's blog, and thanks to her for hosting PFF.  (Click to enlarge)


  1. Happy Birthday to your daughter. This is a wonderful card. So many women in such a small space and all looking at the camera!!! :D :D :D Happy PFF!

  2. It certainly a very large class! It looks as if it must have been a musical group of some sort.

    Birthday wishes to your daughter!

  3. Great postcard! Must be a piano class indeed as you can see the piano in the centre... I love how the lady on the right side sort of "floats" or stands out in the picture.

  4. So - Happy Birthday to your daughter! It's a great card, and it looks to be a real photo.

  5. Such an interesting photo. The woman at the piano only has one finger on a key, hmm, perhaps some other gathering than a piano class. Could be a class for deportment or some such nicities.
