★ ‘Éirinn go Brách’ – Happy St Patrick’s Day!

St Patrick's Day postcard by Ellen Clapsaddle, 1908

★ Happy St Patrick’s Day everyone! A super quick post just to wish you a good day, and to show you this vintage St Patrick’s Day postcard dated around 1908. It features a really quirky illustration by New York based artist, Ellen Clapsaddle, who was the most prolific souvenir, postcard and greeting card artist of her era. Though ephemeral in their day, examples of Clapsaddle’s work are now highly collectible – unsurprising given her wonderfully distinctive style.

Much love,
