Viel Glück im Neuen Jahre!

Lots of luck in the New Year!

Written 28 December 1929 and sent (in an envelope) to the UK.

The postcard is an illustration by the German artist Paul Hey (1867 - 1952) (translation of the wiki page here).  The scene depicts Frau Holle of Grimm's fairy tales, with the girl shaking the feather bed and then it snowing in the world beneath.

  1. That is a cool illustration. I sure do like the Grimm's collections. I read them in their entirety a few years back and was most impressed by how un-PC they were.
