I have also been staging some ephemera with my sewing boxes.
The back of the photo:
"The shade makes me look darker here.
Here I am for your watch Dear, send me yours when you have one taken"
She didn't want anyone thinking she was getting any sun tan on her beautiful porcelain skin! Imagine what she would think of paying for a tan at a modern parlor?
She looks young, maybe the watch belonged to her sweetheart. The photo is trimmed, so I like to think he kept the photo in his watch and thought of her throughout his days.
I came across this card and thought it was funny. We have to laugh at things like sequestra, it helps pass the time! My surgeon was actually great, and in a couple weeks I hope to gift him with this card.
