HOMER'S STAY AT HOME CAMP

VICTORIAN EASTER CARDS

Did you know that Homer Watson reached the peak of his popularity during the Victorian Period?  The Victorian period was also the time when sending greeting cards became fashionable!  The introduction of the halfpenny stamp in the 1870s made mailing cards affordable and it became common practice to send Easter cards. In typical  Victorian style, Easter cards were quite unusual and sometimes even ridiculous!  Why not download one of our templates and colour your own Easter card to send to a loved one.

The Loch Doon area was memorialized in celebrated Scottish poet, Robert Burns piece “Ye banks and braes O’ bonnie Doon”

Ye banks and braes o’ bonny Doon,
How can ye bloom sae fresh and fair?
How can ye chant, ye little birds,
And I sae weary fu’ o’ care?
Thou’lt break my heart, thou warbling bird,
That wantons thro’ the flowering thorn:
Thou minds me o’ departed joys,
Departed, never to return.

Aft hae I rov’d by bonnie Doon,
To see the rose and woodbine twine;
And ilka bird sang o’ its love,
And fondly sae did I o’ mine.
Wi’ lightsome heart I pu’d a rose,
Fu’ sweet upon its thorny tree;
And my fause lover stole my rose,
But, ah! he left the thorn wi’ me.
