World War I Christmas Cards

While little is known about the person who made it, the Sheelah Green-Wilkinson scrapbook album, 1916-1918 is a wonderful collection of mainly Christmas cards, as well as a few photographs from World War I. Many of the cards are quite formal, but others show a bit of whimsy.
