Vintage Postcards from 1908 - 1940s page 12

These are the last two postcards in this collection and the last one is actually from 1981 but it is included because it is written in German script.

I'm not real sure how I came into possession of this postcard. It was written to my dad's Uncle David Heinrichs in Canada from Jakob & Anna Dorn, also in Canada. It appears to be written in the more modern German script, rather than the Gothic.
I hope you have enjoyed looking through this collection of my postcards. I have enjoyed sharing them. I have a couple other small collections that I will post at a later date.

Wasn't it wonderful that people saved these old postcards. I hate throwing away today's Christmas and birthday cards but they seem to be clutter after a while.

I have enjoyed it. My husband's elderly Aunt sent us a handwritten note the other day and after he read it, he was going to throw it in the trash. I nearly screamed, "Do NOT throw that out!!"

Alice - You do have to pick and choose what you hang onto, you can't save EVERYTHING. I've opted to find creative homes for Christmas cards and I don't get that many cards otherwise, so I do save them.

Kimberly - Thanks for stopping by. I would advise ALL my readers to visit YOUR blog for good savings and maybe evening making some extra $$!

Momo - Some people just don't get it. Once the treasures are gone, you don't get them back, you gotta save them.
