53 wartime colour postcards - many of flower fairies and fairy-tale characters - sent to Valerie Waxman of 23 King Street, Southport, Lancashire from ‘Daddy’ and other close relatives.
36 typed cards, 16 hand-written, one blank; the typed cards mostly seemingly enclosed in letters, without stamp, postmark or date. Cards in good condition with light soiling; some creasing. ‘Daddy’, Gersh, evidently travelled with his employment or war work and wrote home encouragingly, but often hoping he will have good reports of his daughter’s behaviour from Mummy - (Minnie): ‘I hope that you are well and still acting like a grown up young Lady. Aunty Annie and Booby are getting a nice surprise for you as another birthday present… Be a good girl and kiss Mummie for me.’ ‘I am hoping you have been a good girl, because then you can… see Judy Garland at the Grand.’ Correspondents include Daddy Gersh, Mummy Minnie, Aunty Florrie, Aunty Ann, Rita, Tony, Boobie, Aunty Lillie and cousin Alan (of Brighton), Grandpa Waxman, Uncle Louis (of Clapton), Uncle Sydney, Aunty Margaret, Aunty Sadie).
