A Look at Christmas/New Year’s Cards in our Collection

Among the many items in our archives is a collection of more than 100 Christmas and New Year’s cards from around the world! Sadly, we do not have donor information, but this collection offers us a glimpse into holiday cards from the past.

The cards all appear to be from the early 1950’s to the early 1960’s.

But the cards are amazing!  Some are colorful, some stark black and white.  Some clearly religious, others merely with a postcard scene from the country of origin. There are about at least 40 different countries represented in the collection. Some have long and full pages of correspondence written inside, and some are simply signed.

We hope you enjoy them! Happy holidays! (Click on the image to see a larger view)
