This is the first card made from the Margate photographs.
I don’t know the couple pictured, but my mam used to have a dress like that. She made it herself, and I imagine this lady made hers, too.
On the back, the photograph is dated July, 1967. I was a few months old when it was taken. The photograph will be fifty years old this year, as will I.
The card is totally unique and is made with ruthless attention to detail.
I have recorded its making on Instagram.
It is listed in my shop under the heading ‘Valentine’, because society insists we put stuff in categories. However, as the inside is left blank for your own message, it could be used for any occasion you see fit. Golden Wedding would be good, what with the 50 thing.
