Prosperous New Year

1913 Christmas card

Another card from my grandma's album. Her school friend wished her a "Prosperous New Year," meaning 1914. Her neighbors were still speaking German at the store, as she spoke to her family in Bohemian. No one in Prescott, Iowa thought much about Kaiser Bill that Christmas.

How neat! My mother has an album of old Valentines her father got as a child in the early 1900s. There are fun to look at.
