Happy New Year - 1905
Greetings-PPC send from Offenbach on New Year Eve : 31.12.04 to Leipzig.

Publisher of PPC : Nurnberg, Theo Stroefer, Serie 437 nr.5

Looking at the picture, I am wondering who was the winner for 1905, the Left or Right hand side ?!?

Would be interesting to understand what did tell the Sender (in so many words )to that Receiver... Miss Gertrud Kunge.

Great New Year card March.

A lot of deltiologists specialize in NY cards alone and some of them can be quite ornate.

I have added some scans to show how fancy some of these can be. A couple of these cards are from the Tucks Series and numbered.

Here is another New Year card, in fact a new century card, for 1900. German card posted to Lindenthal, Cologne on 31/12/1899.

Ha ha - that's a good example of how inscrutable the Sütterlin script is. The only reason I can read the written greeting is because it's standard boilerplate German for "Happy New Year" - "Herzlichen Glückwunsch zum Jahreswechsel 1900." If he had written anything else, it would have been a mystery to me.

There are commercial firms that will translate handwritten Sütterlin into something that normal people can read. It's hard to believe, but supposedly Sütterlin started out as a script that was supposed to be easier for schoolchildren. Yikes!

Interesting link Ryan, thanks. There was a news item over here this week on how many young people can't write long-hand anymore, or even read it properly on old documents. Seems like we are all going the way of Sütterlin in this computer age!
