Happy Easter!

Here are a few more of Aunt Beulah's postcards. These are from 1907. Most of these were printed in Germany. The first card especially has a European look. Notice the onion domed church in the background. Pussy willow branches, along with eggs, seem to signify the season in this artwork. I was surprised not to find any Easter bunnies depicted because that tradition dates back to 1678. There were no religious themes in her Easter card collection either.

Something I noticed when looking at the postmarks is that they were mailed for a penny. One card had a double postmark indicating it came from across the state. Today it would probably take three or four days for a postcard to make that journey. In 1907, it arrived the next day.

Happy Easter to all my blogging friends and their families and Happy Easter to the USPS as well!
