32 Shanah Tovah postcards from Jewish family life with inscriptions in Yiddish and postcards with various scenes and Yiddish inscriptions, published by: Central [Warsaw], Z. Reznik [Warsaw-New York], Synaj [Warsaw], Williamsburg and others, early 20th century.

The postcards depict various scenes from Jewish family life with several lines of dubbing in Yiddish: 'אין שוהל אריין', 'דער חיידר', 'דער סוד', 'קינדער ליעבע', 'דאס קליקליכע פאר', 'די בעל תשבוה'טע','גלות טיבען' and more. Includes a rare postcard with an illustration of a girl crying beside matzahs thrown at her feet and the inscription 'הא לחמא עניא.' [It is rare to find a postcard directly related to the Pesach festival.] There are also postcards with illustrations integrating new inventions (the telescope, the loudspeaker, or the telephone) which enchanted the people of the time with Yiddish captions alongside.

Two were sent in the mail. Fine-very fine condition.
