This will be last article for now on St. Patrick's Day and next week we will get back to Savannah Georgia post cards. Just a short note today since I have already covered a lot of the background on this holiday. St. Patrick's Day is one of only three of our holidays that has origins specifically tied to the arrival of a specific nationality in America with the other two being Halloween and Columbus Day. The last two postcards were published by Raphael Tuck & Sons as "Saint Patrick's Day" Post Cards. The first post card with the boy on it has an undivided back making it 1907 or earlier and it does not have a series number. The second postcard with the girl has a divided back and is from Series 106 and both post cards show children trying to catch a pig in a large shamrock. Be sure to see more of my St. Patrick's Day postcards in my St. Patrick's Day listings on my website at Moody's Vintage Postcards.
