Flippant Friday…… Lockdown Humour


Possibly, like many other folk, I have been spending some lockdown moments sorting through boxes and files.  One of those boxes, has some of my Post Card Collection….. I say collection but in truth they are not that well organised (is catalogued the right word ?).  Nor am I getting very far, spending far too much time pondering on rediscovered finds… here are two of the ‘finds’ to share with you.

The Post Card above, I thought was rather appropriate in the current times of restriction in which we live. It is the creation of the Artist Phil May (1864-1903).  May gathered his inspiration  in the late Victorian era and is often defined as the Artist responsible for the ‘Modern’ Humorous Caricature Cartoons.  This and the image below were published by Raphael Tuck & Sons early 1900’s.  As was Tucks marketing style, the importance and skill of the Artist, was marked by producing these cards as ‘Limited’ Editions. 

Right now, as lockdown continues, I imagine many of us would share the thought expressed below…


I hope they brought a smile to your faces this Friday morning.

Please Remember to ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other
