Christmas Greetings to all

Tuck’s Oilette postcard, “The Arctic Regions. North-West Greenland. The Highway to the Pole.”

 

It seems Hattie Richardson made this lovely postcard into a Christmas Greetings! card

by adding a personal seasonal message relating to the theme of the card on the back.

Unmailed, but addressed to Mrs. Carl Runnel, Willson Ave, Webster City, Iowa.

“Do you look like this? People here imagine so.  A very Merry Christmas.

 (as was?) Hattie Richardson

1220 S Olvera St. Los Angeles.”

This postcard was won by a member in the Vancouver Postcard Club’s Annual Auction held this month. It is on quite thick card and most of the snow filled landscape glitters.  The Christmas Greetings! message must have been painted on by someone (Hattie?) after publication.  The artist was Albert L Operti.
