Christmas Postcards: Allentown 1912

This postcard was mailed on the afternoon of Christmas Eve 1912 from Allentown, Pennsylvania, to the (even today) very rural Richland Center in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, an area featuring iconic red barns. The message offers “Many good wishes for a Merry Christmas is the wish of your friend Ida.”

The picture side of the embossed card features a poinsettia and a quote from Charles Dickens:

Many merry Christmases
Many happy New Years.
Unbroken friendships,
great accumulations of
cheerful recollections and
affections on earth, and
heaven for us all



I'm an American currently living and teaching English in Phuket, Thailand. I like to read, write, take photographs, and collect stamps. You can read about all of these things and more on my three blogs: Asian Meanderings, "Please, Mr. Postman!", Philatelic Pursuits, . Cheers!
