This beautiful old antique paper card has 19th c. fonts. It is dated 1895 and has a black border, and a look common to Victorian Mourning customs. It would have been handed out at William's funeral procession as a memorial. We only have this one. Found in Exeter, Devon County, England. Sadly, William died at the young age of 28 and is buried in the Holy Trinity Church Cemetery.
Size: 4.5 x 3 inches
Note: Hello from ~debra. I have spent years collecting over 10,000 ID’d lost family photos & paper from US, UK flea markets & antique shops. I do the best gen research I can, but am always open to corrections. This is an original antique item, not a reprint. A new high quality rigid sleeve is included for extra protection, especially during shipping. You may buy a piece alone, or large intimate 300 dpi scans of the front and back sent immediately via email, or both. Please search carefully, as they are often found together and many may be related. I also invite you to join me at Ancestorville Genealogy on facebook. Thank you, enjoy! ~Debra Clifford (contact info on top bar)
