In the garden of love under the lilacs, our maiden is being swept of her feet by a handsome suitor. In the language of flowers the purple lilac means the 'first emotions of love'. If the card had portrayed white lilac that would have had a different meaning of youthful innocence. I think the card may have been sent in the first flush of love on 10th September 1908, not only has it lots of kisses at the end
it has the angled stamp over the surname. The message reads
"My dear Ein, Thank you so much for the pretty card. Its just the sort I am very fond of. What I can see of it you insist upon sending me more cards so that I shall have to have another album beside the two I have already. Don't forget 9 O'clock tonight. Bring your ½d with you. With best love. Yours affectionately, Edie"
I wonder how many albums she eventually filled? Philco Publishing, based in London, issued view and artist cards from 1906-1934 so plenty of opportunity for more pretty cards.
