Product Description
A bit of history.
From the 1940's and rather worn but not used.

The title says: Get Busy!!
A worker - Who reminds me of Mr. Barrow on Downton Abby for some reason - rolls up his sleeves.
The card has not been used.

The original postcard is a pen and ink drawing on war-time grade card stock .


I consider this a bit of home front propaganda as its one of the postcards that was seen as worthy of medium to high grade paper during a time of rationing.
This is a very high resolution digital copy. You will need to print it.

It works well as a large poster - 600dpi will do that _ have an 11 by 14 inch version in almost every classroom I visit. Lots to be said for high grade propaganda.


I rather like old postcards. Indeed I have been known to use them as a reason to learn cursive. Who is not tempted to read other peoples mail?

As I see it there is a story behind this picture.
So I print them up and get students to write a postcard. Something more than "having a wonderful time - wish you were here."
Witty perhaps? Or just chatty.
They can even send the postcard - I check it over, record a mark, give them a 1 cent (Canadian stamp - generally a flower, puffin or baby polar bear.) Frank the stamp and hand it to the class post person who slips it in the locker/mail slot as addressed.

These scans are 600 bpi so you can size the image to requirements- use a whole standard sheet of paper if you want.

I am not offering this one for free as I think once you try some of the others that are free you will see the value.



Feed back would be really nice!!!!
