Here is a collection of 20 colorful Easter postcards from the early twentieth century.
These were apparently especially popular from around 1900 to around 1915 — and, 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.
