1736 - Fink of Me Enjoyin' Meself at Salcombe 2315 - It Dosen't Matter Wot You Wear I'll think You Look Just Fine! 886 - Auntie's Utility's Come Down To me!

Mabel Lucie Attwell, born in 1879, was married to Harold Earnshaw and began her career by illustrating children's books. Many of these illustrations were used for postcards. She was very much an observer of the times and reflected this in her art. Her cute children show many adult traits and thus ensured a wide appeal to the audiences of the times which spanned 40 years. Fashion, and the following of it, appears in many of her postcards. Many small girls have tried on Mother's clothes and experienced the anguish of the poor fit. Her post cards and book illustrations continue their popularity today and remind many of us of amusing moments in our childhoods.
