I'm from Finland and collect cards of various types, but one that is quite easy to find are postcards from New York so here is a video that I have made.

My collection of postcards from New York United States into a single video, all of which are old from the beginning of the 1900s :D

You've got a nice collection! I love this style of drawing.
Where did you get these from?
I really like the ones with scenes from Central Park and Bronx.

All I have bought in Finland in various actions but once I found 50 cards all from the New York area and all from the same woman who moved from Finland to the United States around 1904 and sent home cards in about 10 years to the same address.

The first card she wrote it said that she had not been able to write earlier because she had got "CLIMATE DISEASE" whatever that is, and she has to stay in bed for several days, so it was a bit funny to read

I also collect cards from my home town of Jakobstad, Pietarsaari in Finnish and Jakobstad in Swedish

I also made a video of some of my cards from Jakobstad as you can see here

If you know where I can find postcards from jakobstad or Finland, I am inreserad to buy :lol:
