My friend Debra keeps me supplied with very old (1906 through about 1912) seasonal postcards, from her family in Wisconsin. It was she who provided the old Thanksgiving and Halloween cards posted earlier.
For the next few days, I'll post a few of her Christmas cards, starting with these from 1906. Imagine that. There must be 100 Christmas postcards from these years; unfortunately about half of them don't appear to have been mailed (no stamps, no postmarks) even if they do have writing on them.
Here are the three from 1906. The one with the birds is included as moral support for my cousin, Nancy, who is going to be leading the national bird count in her area on Saturday. Go, Nancy!
