Hands Across the Sea always have a special significance for me because my Grandfather, an ex sailor, had a very pale blue tattoo of this sentiment on his forearm. His was rather plainer than this pretty card ,which certainly works the theme for alls it worth. Roses, a cottage, the river to the sea, a lighthouse and to top it all off an airship. I suppose when this card was sent the airship was going to be the way everyone was going to travel. The card is unstamped
but a birthday message from Dolly to her father. Including the words indicating mortality "hope you may live to have a lot more birthdays". I wonder where he was celebrating his Sunday birthday party?
