Cool Vintage Post Cards
I have seen some neat collections of vintage post cards over the years. From reproductions for purchase, to simple pictures that people have shared from their collections, etc. Here I am sharing a collection of images I have found that are in the public domain, that have to do with ringing in the New Year. Many of them simply say, "Happy New Year!" Some say a variation of that, and some are in other languages. It's a simple sentiment that has been sent to many year after year.
As we celebrate yet another New Year, I thought it would be a neat time to share some of these images with others as well, and not just enjoy them alone! Sometimes, crafters or artists like to see vintage images like these from the old postcards of the past. They can be a fun springboard for new crafting ideas, or making your own cards.
I think these vintage cards are a great snapshot into history. If you are like me, you will notice that they often have a very neat "feel" to them, something almost consistent at times. I even love the fonts, the colors and their saturation, and the simple classic designs. Many are cute, many are lovely. I wonder what you think of them!
I will share many postcard photos here with you. Under each will have a little more information about it, or links to where you can find more information about them. I hope you like many of them as I do.

Happy New Year - Russian Jews gazing across European Shores
This particular post card above, really caught my attention. It depicts some Russian Jews with bags i hand, as they look across the ocean toward America. It shows their relatives that are already in America. There is an American Eagle that is holding a banner, showing a reference to Psalm 17:8, "Shelter us in the shadow of Your wings." I thought this was quite incredible! It really is sending a powerful message that perhaps many have felt over the years and may continue to now to this day. A very historical piece! This postcard is beckoning them, welcoming them to their new home, through the outstretched arms of the relatives already there. I really loved the message. Created between 1900 and 1920, and is a lithograph postcard. What a neat way to with someone a Happy New Year, and a happy new life!

Christmas and New Years Greetings Combined
It almost goes without saying, that we will wish people a Happy New Year, in even a Christmas greeting card. With one holiday following so close behind another, it is normal to see the same observance of vintage postcards from the past here. Below is an example of a couple of these, where we see the "Merry Christmas and Happy New wishes combined, in a vintage post card.
There are several postcards represented here in this hub, but to not slow the loading for anyone's computer, I have taken advantage of the thumbnails. To view all of the different postcards, simply click on one of the larger images, and scroll or arrow through the images until you see them all. Some are so unique and different, that it is worth viewing them once I think! Hopeful, fun, and some cute images to help start off a new year right! To my understanding at the time of publishing, all of these are in the public domain, so are free to use. However, it doesn't hurt to go to the linked site under the image, and make sure this is still the case.
Wishing you and yours a very Happy and Hope filled New Year this year!
