Antique Sweethearts

"Friendship, like the ivy, clings, to older times and older things."

A blog for my growing collection of antique photographs, postcards and autograph books.


Dear Lucy,
Arrived safe at 10.45 Thursday night Battalion is broke up and I do not know where I am going. I am not supposed to be writing this but I took a chance. Will write you a good long letter next time as soon as we get settled
Yours Tom

I really hope Tom made it home and married Miss Lucy Howard, if she was his sweetheart…
