There'll Always Be An England
I discovered this beautiful calendar from 1942. It has beautiful photographs of England along with snippets of poetry. Enjoy!
The calendar was manufactured by Raphael Tuck & Sons Co., Inc. They produced not only calendars, but greeting cards and post cards for many years. Here is a good place to learn more about them.
