Easter greetings from the past

with 8 comments

In my collection of old post cards, I have quite a few Easter greetings.  The postmarks range in date between 1912 and 1922.  Some of the cards are not postmarked, so they must have been delivered personally.

I like the hand-written message on the back of one.  It says, very briefly, ‘write me a good long letter’ !

Post cards are even rarer than letters in our world of emails and tweets.  But a card is so much fun to receive.  My brother and sister-in-law often send me greeting cards through the year and I keep a string in the corner of the living room to display them.

The ‘chick’ is a popular theme on the post cards.  I thought I would share them with you…

  1. Love the Easter cards in your collection – I enjoy receiving postcards and greeting cards, too. When someone goes on a trip and asks me what I’d like to have as a souvenir, I always ask them to send me a postcard for my collection. It’s such a simple pleasure! Hope you had a very joyful Easter, Jane…
