~ Maidie's Birthday Postcard ~

Maidie's birthday is February 1st and I was excited to find this postcard from her Papa Herman among my collection of old ones.
He was visiting his family in Switzerland in 1928 when he sent this scene of the Jungfrau mountain back home to Birminghaam.

Papa's mesage reads:

My dear little daughter.
I am sending you the deepest felt wishes and greetings for your 11th birthday,
from the most glorious and awe inspiring mountain in the world.
May your life always be as serene and faultless as this mountain typifies: the Jungfrau.
Tears are dimming my sight so much lately since I have been in the Alps,
especially when thinking of you and dear Mother.
Your loving Daddy
