Old New Year's Cards
A New Year's Card from the year 1914, with the traditional clock-face showing the time approaching midnight.
The text with the arrow pointing toward 1915 says:
"Gleðilegt Nýár!", a Happy New Year!
The text with the arrow pointing toward 1914 says:
"Þökk fyrir gamla árið!", Thank you for the old year!
The poem under 1914 in rough translation:
Depart with blessings, ancient year,
Like a light in space!
You have brought both smiles and tears,
Into this world.
The poem under 1915 in rough translation:
Arrive with blessings, youthful year,
Here with rosy cheeks.
Grant to each a smile on his face,
And bright and pleasant days.
