Happy New Year from a Century Ago: Old Postcard Greetings


At the start of the 20th century, in the age before texting, instant-messaging, email and social networking, people wished friends and relatives a happy New Year by mailing attractive postcards with artwork symbolizing the passage of time.  Here are several postcard greetings that were mailed back in that era.  The top card, a wish for happy New Year was mailed on New Year’s Eve 1910 from Washington D.C. to Mrs. Sophia McKnight in Elkton.  (A street name or address wasn’t necessary for the postman.) The other two cards from 1908 wished the recipents a prosperous New Year as father-time passed by were from 1908.
