The Best Gift Ever ...

I purchased this photo from a British vendor a while back.  It is a 5 x 7 fan card of Bob's with a handmade border to look like a wooden frame, some kind of cloth cut into strips and painted black, a clever idea.  Dated April 25, 1935,  it is the product of the Depression when resourcefulness was essential.   

Some lucky girl got Bob's photo from her loving Uncle Alf and Auntie Edna.  How nice of them to go to the trouble of getting the fan card and then making the nifty frame.  Considering the great shape it is in today, she evidently treasured it. 

Ya' know ... I'm a tad bit envious.
