Happy New Year 1909

This hundred-year-old 1909 year date New Year card is copyright '07 by P. Sanders, N.Y.

A variety of designs were used for New Year year date postcards published in the early 1900s during the years of the postcard craze. Some relied primarily on typography, either simple or ornate, like this one. Some just added a date to a typical holiday design. Others filled large number outlines with pictures or used pictures shaped like numbers.

This postcard wishes "A Happy Newyear to my dear Aunt Elsie from her littel(?) Walter and a lot of kisses."
