    CokeKid-04
    (172 items)

    I recently purchased a few items from a collector who is thinning out their collection. This was something that intrigued me.
    It is 7” x 5.25” in total. Framed back painted glass with image behind.
    Some paint has lifted, but overall it looks great with bright colours.
    The mini calendar slides down. The cover says “seasons greetings” which is politically correct, but was that an issue in 1942? That date is not noted anywhere else.
    Do I have a recent souvenir from a Brownsville, Tennessee shop, or an actual 1942 (1941) piece?
    Any information is appreciated.
    Thanks!

      CokeKid-04, Cool.

      No, the salutation "Season's Greetings" doesn't seem to have been an issue in 1942, or even further back:

      *snip*

      The great holiday greeting debate doesn’t seem to be reflected in the history of greeting cards themselves, which have a long tradition of varied offerings for the holiday season. Hallmark, founded by J.C. Hall in 1910, started producing its own greeting cards in 1915.

      “The company’s first line of Christmas cards prominently featured the sentiments ‘Merry Christmas,’ ‘Christmas Greetings’ and ‘Season’s Greetings’ on the front of each design,” says Samantha Bradbeer, archivist and historian for Hallmark Cards, Inc.

      FYI, it looks like you provided a glimpse of the paper calendar for December, and in 1942, the 31st of December was indeed on a Thursday):

      Thank you ‘keramikos’! The info you provided does help. I’m feeling better about my purchase. Yes, the page seen is December. Nice catch.
      Thanks again.

      I did a little more digging and found just a few others. I believe I did well on this purchase as the value is almost triple what I paid.
      I’ll post other items I recently purchased soon.
      Hope your Memorial Day or Victoria Day was a pleasant one.

      CokeKid-04, You're welcome.

      Memorial Day for the U.S. is yet to come (next Monday). I hope you had a nice Victoria Day today. :-)

      Yep......
      Hope those who will be celebrating this coming weekend have a great Memorial Day.
      ;-)
