Sweden is also our native district, even if in some wider sense.
The postcard set “Svenskt folklif” was pubished in the beginning of 1900.
I had my eyes on it by luck. At that time there was a experienced postcard collector, Bengt Bärndal, selling litle of what he had collected during 40 years. Among other things many of the postcards in the set “Svenskt folklif”.
Click on the album above for some information about the postcard set.
Later shopping, both on Tradera and several international postcard sites, has compleated the set.
Totally the set contains of 47 postcards, all numbered and provided with a text/headline.
One reason for that I had my eyes on this postcards was that they showed “common” people in “common” dresses. (Nr 36 differ from this rule.) There is a lot of postcards with similar themes where everyone is wearing local dresses in the weekdays situations. Quite stilted!
