Cats, dogs and gnomes…

For the festive season we are sharing some of our seasonal collections on social media. These images are of Christmas cards in the collections at the Museum of Childhood.

These cards prove that people still loved cat pictures in the pre-internet world:

And lastly, this is a very strange card featuring Christmas gnomes- They look like they are having a good party in the snow!

I'm the Outreach & Access Manager at Edinburgh Museums & Galleries (the museums service of the City of Edinburgh Council). I take the museums out to community groups and schools. I really enjoy meeting lots of people of different ages and backgrounds and helping them connect with our collections. I love showing people some of the amazing objects that we hold and I like helping them to remember the past or to create something amazing.
