Christmas Greetings from Early in the 20th Century

These penny postal greetings date from the early 1900s. They were received by my husband's uncle, Wallis W. Wood, who was then a youngster living in Cleveland, Ohio. 

Printed in beautiful color in Germany, some of the penny post cards sent to the Wood family were purchased in Toledo, Ohio, and others in Chicago, Illinois. All the cards are still in great shape, in the family's hands more than a century later!


  1. I love all those old vintage postcards, especially ones that spotlighted various holidays.

  2. You have such a wonderful collection of vintage postcards. I have been purchasing some to use for illustrating my blog, but having personal ones is a real treasure.

  3. The colors are amazing still!
