Robert Dudley, illustration from The Twigs, or Christmas at Ruddock Hall, c. 1890

This Christmas card pack features a delightful image of robins dressed in the attire of Victorian gentlemen and partaking in a game of bowls with red berries on a frozen lake. The original is held in the special collections of Cambridge University Library, and is accompanied by a short rhyme:

'And the games that we had, oh! they were so nice, 
Such sleighing and skating and bowls on the ice.'
