The image above is of a card that was printed in Germany, circa 1915, for the Williamsburg Post Card Company, New York. These three bicyclists carry cards with new year wishes, and the text above reads: Awake, a new year is in sight/God unlocks treasures, joy, and might/Days of happiness you will be granted/A life blesses as a shining light.
