Another cozy Christmas postcard

This vintage, embossed postcard isn't specifically pegged to Christmas, but I think it still works as a cozy holiday card. It was published by the Douglass Post-Card Company, located at 27 North 10th Street in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It was printed in Germany.

The postcard was never used and printed on the back is "This side for the Address," meaning that it might date to before March 1907, which is when divided-back postcards were first allowed in the United States. Before that, only the address — nothing else — was permitted to be written on the back.

It's high time for this postcard to serve its original purpose. So I'll be using it to send out some holiday greetings this month.
