Nothing Says Birthday Wishes Like Doomsday

 ...and a terrified toddler.

Olive, not always so chipper when it came to birthdays.  But there seems like no better way to celebrate today than some of Olive Fell's birthday cards.  These are the original boards used to create her cards, check out the retouching on tissue before they were mounted to the boards.

It might seem like I've abandon you, Olive.  You might as well face it,  I'll never forget your birthday.  

Florence Olive Fell, born June 1, 1896.
