Christmas e-cards

Christmas is now just days away and today is your last chance to send cards in the first class post in the UK.

Don't panic though, for even if you miss the post you can still send a Christmas e-card. This card is one of a selection of vintage Christmas and New Year e-cards from National Museums Liverpool's collections.

There is also a selection of fine art Christmas e-cards, which includes some of the popular paintings and sculpture from National Museums Liverpool's collections, as well as previous exhibitors from the John Moores Painting Prize exhibitions.

Our e-cards are free to send and delivered faster than Father Christmas's sleigh could travel. You can even send a single e-card to several people to help save you time. So what are you waiting for? Send some festive greetings online!

This card, dated Christmas 1914, is from the Decorative Art collection at the Walker Art Gallery. It is not currently on display.

The text on the card reads:

Fighting fleas (?) in Flanders
4th division
Flight of fleas from Flanders [by a line of dots moving away from the tubs]
With best wishes.
