Aother town, another auction

At the weekend we went to another auction in a different town. It was nice to play the tourist and enjoy the weather at the same time. I’m beginning to recognise some of the people now, mainly dealers in coins, I’m glad to say! The auctioneers are beginning to know who we are too...

This is a card from one of the lots we bought. The artist was A Schlomka, I haven’t been able to find out more, except for another postcard online dated around 1911. I was touched by this one because as a mother of three children and having two sisters and a brother myself, I know that co-operation between siblings is rare.

I am sorry for repeating myself. But your cards not only touch, but the also express something which we tend to loose: Tenderness.

That is a very touching card indeed. It is very rare indeed to see siblings helping each other in this day and age.

Whenn: thanks and thank you!

Worldman: You are too kind

Titania: You are right, but even when I was small (a long time ago) siblings fought each other, I still carry the scars..

My maiden name was Schlomka! I'm researching the Schlomkas and have come across this man before. The artist's name is Alfred and he was Hungarian. Very cute pic.

Andera: I'm sorry but we sold the card on. There wasn't too much on the internet when I looked. Fortunately for me Helen has come to the rescue with more detail, though not much more...

Helen: Thank you for coming to the rescue. perhaps you and Andrera are cousins!!

Helen and I met this past summer at the second Internartional Family Reunion in Hampton, Minnesota USA- it was a success and so fun to meet sooo many schlomkas!

Andera:So you are cousins!
