As for the "normals" out there, maybe you can appreciate the interesting "dotty" printing technology, or the really nice paintings, done in a style that we just don't see any more. These are all from 1908 - 1909, which is roughly Downton Abbey era. So, if you were getting a card for Mister Bates' birthday or whoever, it probably would have looked like this... plus, it may have had a little Spanish Flu on it. That may explain why several of the Images and Scanning Them team are bleeding from their eyes this morning.

|Nice painting, despite the incorrect perspective on the lodge... unless the|
staff sleeping quarters was sliding down the hill.

of the infant tree.
