Description

This postcard was once given to my Great Grandfather. This illustrated card shows some hard times with Santa ringing a bell, and standing near his patched toy sacks!

The card sentiment says: "May you lack naught to make yours a most happy xmas". The card is marked 7010 (likely a series number). The back of the card notes the copyright is by S. Bergman 1912 N.Y.

Click on any of my photos twice for a close-up.

This card was in a box of belongings from Great Grandmother. I have oodles of cards that I'm posting on etsy, so continue to check my shoppe often! They are all from the time period of 1908 to 1915.

Grandma kept everything, including this old newspaper clipping (not included) about One Cent to ship postcards to most destinations via the postal service. Mail was the most inexpensive way to let your friends and family know you were well and pass on additional news like a birth in the family! Postcards were very popular communication during the early 1900's! And why not make it pretty, too?!.....Postcards came in a lovely variety of beauty! Just imagine how exciting it would be to receive such a pretty postcard! (See full newspaper clipping by clicking on the photo of the clipping in this listing. Click on it again to enlarge!)

This card's condition is quite good. There are some age spots on this card, consistent with it's age of 100 years old. (Please double click to enlarge all my photos to view close-ups). The corners are slightly bumped. This postcard is charming and has character.

Not marked by the Postal Service. Writing on the card back is in pencil.
