A Happy New Year To You All! Antique New Year Postcard

And the best of good wished to you all for a wonderful, happy, healthy and prosperous New Year!  Here is our second to last antique New Year postcard...I will post my favorite tomorrow!






This embossed divide back postcard has one of my beloved vignettes...this of a snow scene with a Norman style church with a holly frame. It is difficult to see, but there are gold metallic words A Happy New Year.


The card was postmarked for Dec. 31, 1913 from Milton, NH to Razor Falls, Maine. Written in pencil, it is a reminder of the time when the postmaster or postmistress knew everyone. The address has only the name and city...nothing else. Now that is a time long ago and faraway for most of us!

Have a lovely evening, don't forget to be thankful for the blessings of the past year as we look forward to the blessings and challenges of 2012.


Happy New Year!

  3. My neighbor across the street has been collecting vintage postcards for years. They are truly works of art in their own right. Sometimes the quality of color and detail is just staggering.
    God bless,
