Mrs Kennedy Card

October 20, 2010

Handed out as a response to the outpouring of grief towards the death of her husband, this memorial card shows the appreciation Mrs Kennedy felt for the people.

It follows the formal memorial card design that still exists, in the black border on the card and envelope and is an elegant piece of stationery.

Notice the similarities between this and the card for George V, both only thirty years apart.
