Social Card

I think that the things I like best to find in the archives are the small things, things that would remain unseen and forgotten or just thrown away because they have no value
other than sentimental. But very often those give us the taste of what life was back then. Here is a prime example: a social card.This one belonged to William Latter that was one of our students in 1906. Inside it is divided into two parts-card playing roster and a dance card. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a dance card before.Whether you yourself are a party
animal or a total wallflower , you can imagine the times when even going to a party to play some cards and shake your rumps on the dancefloor would require timetables and lists.
