(5 1/2 x 3 1/2 In) This is an original antique E. C. C. postcard from the 1910s. It shows Faith circled in roses and clinging to a cross, Charity circled in ivy offering Fruit and Hope circled in Lilies holding an anchor as she looks to the skies.
"FAITH ~ CHARITY ~ HOPE.
Faith doth brighten out life's way.-
Hope keepeth dull cares at bay.
Charity goodness doth portray."
