Easter Greetings to Norbert – Milwaukee, Wisconsin (1908)

Master Norbert Dittmer lived on Fond-de-Lac Avenue in Milwaukee, Wisconsin; his grandma and grandpa lived nearby.

From the form of address, we may assume that Norbert is a child.

In April of 1908, Norbert received an Easter postcard from his grandparents.

The face of the postcard bears an illustration of a rude, wooden cross adorned with white lilies.

The gilded words, “Easter Greetings” radiate from the base of the drawing.

The illustration is embossed; neither the artist nor the publisher is identified.

At the bottom of the postcard, “grandpa” and “grandma” are inscribed.

One hopes that Norbert and his family, including the grandparents, enjoyed a blessed Easter in 1908.
