Romantic postcards

My Grandfather emigrated from Bulgaria to the States in about 1920, leaving his sweetheart behind with the intention of soon returning to marry her and bring her to a new home in the USA. It took him 5 years but return he did. I like to imagine that these postcards with the romantic themes were ones that he and Grandma wrote to each other during those 5 years of separation. They are all written in Bulgarian so I have no way of knowing.
Who are those Viking looking fellows lurking in the background of the above picture? What is this liaison all about?
I find these to be such lovely cards and I hope you enjoy them too.
Be well.

Audrey, how did you manage to comment on this before I even got my text posted? I have been having trouble getting my posts to upload to blogger, maybe one of my attempts from yesterday loaded and I was unaware of it. Thanks for looking and commenting.

LOL! Jan, when I went to your blog, the postcards were there, but no text. I just assumed that was the way you wanted it. I enjoyed their beauty even without the words. You are right ~ it must have loaded and you didn't realize.
They are very romantic... it is fun to imagine what things were like in those days!

These are beautiful---I remember your e-mail about them.
What a treasure; nothing like them anymore. I think I like the B&W photo ones even a bit more than the colors....they have a certain quality to them!
