The New Year and Clocks

There are a number of symbols that are associated with the New Year. One of my favorites is the image of a clock striking midnight. Here are some classic examples.

These cards were all produced by Raphael Tuck & Sons. Here are the backs of the cards in the same order.



  1. What lovely wishes between families for the New Year! Sadly, not so many of those cards being sent today though!

  2. Tuck's postcards are the best..wonderful images,beautifukky done.
    Happy New Year to you!!

  3. What was that naughty young boy doing, smoking? But these are absolutely charming images.

  4. I love these classic postcards. Perfect for new years. I can’t help but notice the Ben Franklin stamp on the bottom card. One of my favorite elements of these old postcards is the handwritten fonts. Thanks for pulling these together!
