Christmas Greetings from 1905


Faintly unnerving Christmas cards from all the way back in 1905; coming well over a decade before the birth of Surrealism, yet undoubtedly some some kind of pre-cursor.

There are a few more creepy scenes like this online too, this contented dame has buckets full of infants, and looks pretty smug about it too.


Maybe baby fishing was just the done thing back then.  Found by my Dad, a reliable postcard fiend, at some sort of subversive ephemera hang-out in rural Cheshire.
