Back in 2018 I purchased a hand painted card on eBay to adapt for use for as a Christmas card - the result (below right) was very pleasing; however, I recently came across what must have been the original card which my artist must have used as his inspiration. The original, in my opinion, was far inferior to the copy - especially the very odd inclusion of the sunburst which completely ruins the picture. It's not the first time that I've come across this scenario but I find it interesting nonetheless. The original card was published by Woolstone Bros., in their Milton Series - 532 - and posted in 1903.

A couple of more recent purchases; neither earth shatteringly interesting but I felt still worthy of preservation and only a few pounds.

The Belfast Lough card dates from 1913 and I'm sure that its creator would be amazed that it still survives.
