Thanks to Beth for hosting the delightful Postcard Friendship Friday! I leave later today for the Morgantown, P.A., Paper Doll Luncheon but hope to check in with other PFF buddies before I leave, and catch up with the rest of you when I return late Saturday. Of course, I hope to find many interesting goodies at the luncheon, which I will post here in the coming weeks.
How could I resist this little kitty?
This 1929 card is signed "The Wildwood Bunch." Of course, the gang was being funny: black cats are connected with bad luck, not good. (Although my late great Midnight brought me a ton of luck, and love.) Wildwood is one of the historic seaside resorts here in N.J., mostly famous now for its kitschy motels--think 1950s moderne-space age star-bursts and rockets. Back reads: Black Cat, Printed in U.S.A. Bamforth Comic. Addressed to The Kern Twins of West Reading, P.A. I bet the Kern Twins were two very pretty young women. Sounds like this bunch had some good times.
