Flash Cards, Work Sheets and Pinterest

Remember flash cards from your school days ? When I was going to school ours were made out of manila paper with bold black lettering or numbers.  This vintage looking  one has a great colorful image of  a young girl and boy under a umbrella ...
Very faint on the card you can see "postage" and a 1cent...maybe it's  a commemorative stamp  for vintage flash cards...then you will have a one cent stamp the next time the post office raises the rates
The half page is covered in ABC's and a subtraction work sheet...the dreaded
TAKE A WAYS. You remember,  9 take a way 6 equals what?
Turn the half page  over to reveal  the rest of  students  school work
Love the look of these old desks, very ornate with the cast iron scroll work.
I'm sure at the time the students in the class room were unimpressed with how fancy the desks were. 
They had no idea decades later their great grand kids would be shopping in antique stores trying to find one of these desks for a vintage home decor the one they found on Pinterest
