Offering an ethnic, comic, vintage postcard from 1913.
This antique postcard jokes about the Dutch or Norwegian accent and features a boy and a girl trying to communicate via an old telephone. They may have had a lovers quarrel. They wear wooden shoes and ethnic hats and clothes. Minnesota was settled mainly by immigrants from Scandinavia, Norway, Germany and Holland, so this would have been very funny and very understood at the time.
The postcard measures 3 1/2" X 5 1/2". There is a hand written letter at the back, a postmaster ink stamp dated 1913 and a George Washington 1 cent postage stamp.
My postcards are all originals from the time stated. This postcard has no tears or stains. The top line is whole, not cut off. It was just scanned a bit crooked.
