These pretty postcards were especially popular from 1900 to around 1915. In fact, it was the holiday postcard craze of this era that inspired a certain Joyce Hall to start a greeting card company which eventually became known as Hallmark.
As the existence of this little gallery demonstrates, such greeting cards were often considered special keepsakes, and so were put into scrapbooks, or simply saved and passed down to family members.
Take a look back to a quieter time, before Easter meant lots of candy-filled plastic eggs and marshmallow chicks.

Can you give me an idea what years Easter greeting cards were priced at 10-15 cents each?? I have a bundle of these cards but not able to tell the year they were printed. Thanks
Thank you for curating these delightful cards. It’s fun to see so many at once.
