We have a large collection of St. Patrick's Day greeting cards and postcards from the wee years of 1900, and we have been marveling over the vintage images of Ireland. One of the popular themes of those years was the close relationship between Ireland and the U.S., with handshakes across the sea and proud displays of the two flags.
