Sunday Bandstand 19 December 2021

Our featured image is one of the first Christmas cards sent in 1843 by Sir Henry Cole of the V&A Museum in London. If you just happen to have one tucked away in the dark corner of a cupboard or an old shoebox at home, the last one to be sold was at an auction in New York and was sold for over $10,000. If you do have one I am sure you will have the best New Year you have ever had.... Enjoy the show...
