"A Happy New Year" Wintry Scene Postcard

Title

"A Happy New Year" Wintry Scene Postcard

Description

This postcard is oriented vertically and shows a wintry scene. On the card, a woman is seen stepping out of a home onto a snowy sidewalk. Her face is not clear, but she hods a book under her left arm and wears a blue dress, white apron, and white bonnet. The lawn in front of the house has evergreen plants covered in snow. The house is two stories and there are three sets of windows of 9 individual panels, all of which are lit up with red candles. The house has a billowing chimney in its center and a steep roof, all covered in snow. The house also has green shutters against its dark brown exterior on either side of each set of windows. The doorway that the woman is walking from has a door with a curved top, and the door stands open as she walks out, but light shines from the two windows built into the door. The upper right corner reads "A Happy New Year."
