Playing cardsAbout this object
These playing cards are made from thin cardboard and have no numbers printed on them, only the usual symbols. Simple games, like these playing cards, were an important part of Victorian life in an era where there was no television, computers or radio. Games were a vital source of entertainment and provided hours of enjoyment. These cards most likely belonged to Margaret Edith Lush who would have enjoyed playing card games with her two sisters, Blanche and Anne, and three brothers, Charles, John and William.
