Happy Easter!

This 1921 Easter postcard from Eugene V. Debs to Clytie Peterson of Milwaukee, Wisc., is an absolutely beautiful print. The young children gathering daffodils, holding hands as they walk up a path and holding a bouquet of flowers is very inviting.

The back side of the card is interesting, too. It seems that Debs liked poetry that rhymed. On the reverse side of the card, in what appears to be a child’s handwriting, is the following note: “I send this friendly little rhyme to wish you well at Easter-time.”

This postcard is part of the Special Collections Department at Indiana State University.
