Have you ever noticed there's a story everywhere you look?
I found this wonderful Christmas card, posted from an ocean liner in 1938, in a Yorkshire antique shop one sunny day last June. The verse inside reads:
To wish you every dear delight
That Christmastide can bring
All through the year, Good health, Good cheer
Good luck in everything
America and West Indies Station
Included are a photo of the liner on a recent voyage and a 'calling card' in a small envelope beautifully inscribed with the initial of the sender, known only as John.
I wonder what Scrooge would make of this?
