Happy Birthday, 1949-style

I was digging through some boxes today and came across a birthday card sent to my grandmother from her aunt in 1949!


Only 3 cents postage!  The postmark is from Klamath Falls, Oreg, November 7, 1949.  My grandfather was stationed at MCRD Paris Island at the time.



It's a pop-up card, which doesn't really translate too well when squished flat on a scanner.
