Early 1960s New Baby and Baby Shower Greeting Cards
What I found most interesting about these early 1960s new baby cards, is the frequent golden shoe motif. Also, most of the baby shower cards seem relatively gender-neutral, because ultrasound wasn’t used for sex-determination until the early 70s (according to this article on LiveScience).
The little rhymes and happy illustrations inside these baby shower cards are totally cute!
I don’t know much about the background or people behind these cards, but I believe that the mother was a stay-at-home mom in Saint Louis City, and probably Catholic. I forget the date, but I think they’re from 1963 or 1964. Definitely new baby cards from the early 1960s!
Best wishes, gifts, and kind words for the mother to be and her soon-to-be-born baby!
