Happy New Year! from B. Fredriksson

The previous post G007.3 (Folkdräkt, Jösse Härad) from Gustav’s postcard album reminded me of this card I’d seen in his sister Gerda’s album – also a harvest picture and with folk costumes, but from a different part of Sweden (Skåne, the most southern province).

There seems to be only four cards in Gerda’s card collection from before she went to America, and I thought I’ll insert those here before I go on with Gustav’s album.

These four cards confirm that around New Year and Easter 1902 Gerda was staying with her older sister Emma and family at Sörby near Falköping. (Emma’s husband was Brynolf Wilander.)
