EDITORS COMMENTS
Step back in time with this charming Old Maid card featuring a friendly postman from the 1940s. The image, captured in black and white, showcases a jovial postman in his red uniform, proudly holding a stack of letters in one hand and a mailbag slung over his shoulder. The red pillar box and the GPO (General Post Office) sign in the background add to the nostalgic feel of the scene. The Old Maid card game, a popular pastime during the 1940s, was a variation of the classic Sheldon R. Cooper card game. In this game, the objective was to get rid of all the cards in your hand, except for one - the Old Maid. The player left with the Old Maid at the end of the game was the loser. This particular card, with its cheerful postman, adds an interesting twist to the game. The postman's smile and rosy cheeks convey a sense of warmth and friendliness, making it a delightful addition to any collection. The card's age, estimated to be from the 1940s, adds to its historical value and charm. The image, by Terry Parker and available through Mary Evans Picture Library, is a wonderful reminder of a simpler time when letters were the primary means of communication and the postman was a familiar and beloved figure in the community.
