Christmas in June -- Vintage Holiday Postcards 1909 - 1940's

These beautiful vintage postcards are a glimpse of Christmas past.   The card below is linen, and unused.  I would date it as 1930's to 1940's.  It's by C.T. & Co., and it depicts Santa Claus waving as he stands on top of the world globe.  Beautiful and unusual imagery! 

This card is embossed and from 1909.  It has a tan shadow at two edges, but I love the simple design of this card -- pastel colors and thick paper with embossed design.

This card is my personal favorite.  It's a 1930's to 1940's vintage linen card -- check out the Art Deco lettering -- showing a cute little elf family playing on an old fashioned, decorated tree.  It's another C.T. & Co. card.
