Birth Announcements

 Even well-to-do babies had calling cards!  Used in place of a birth announcement, a smaller card was attached with a ribbon to the calling card of the parents. The only information included was the date.  No reference to such things as height, weight or time were deemed necessary.
This is the card announcing the birth of Marion Louise Moran, September 24, 1923 to Mr. and Mrs. James Henderson Moran.
