This charming verse was sent, not to Susie Meyer as were the postcards in previous posts, but to her future husband, Carl Schulz. His brother William Schulz sent the card. He was born in Brandenburg, Germany on January 1, 1887. Read the greeting. You can hear the German accent in his words.
Sent on January 7, 1908, the greeting above came long before the card seen below, and the wedding of Carl Schulz and Susie Meyer on June 8, 1915. But somehow it fell into Susie’s collection.
This card was posted December 30, 2014, one of Susie’s newer keepsakes. Compare the two cards. What a different feel they each have! Seven years more modern and fashionable!
The greeting from friend Gladys is brief. A card for the new year, it matches my own New Year’s wishes. I just sent my cards—didn’t make the Christmas deadline. Fashions may change but not much in human nature!
All dates in this post come from The Schulz Genealogy: The Heritage of Martin and Marie Schulz by Martha Knoll Isensee written in 1987. God Bless the family genealogist!
