This postcard was a Birthday Card to my Great Grandfather from his Grandma! The back is signed in pencil. No postmark or stamp. The postcard is by publisher SB Series 1001/3. Printed in German. The sentiment simply says: Birthday Greetings.

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!)

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

This card's condition is very good. It is vintage, and not new condition or mint condition. This card has charm and simplicity, and is from an age of almost 100 years ago! (Please double click to enlarge all my photos to view close-ups).

Postal Use: Not stamped or posted. The message on the back is in pencil.
