A vegetarian Postcrosser asked for postcards with food. She assured that she would not be offended to get postcards with meaty dishes on them, but innocently wondered: “Do postcards with such food even exist?”

Well, in Estonia, for example, blood sausages make appearance on Christmas cards regularly.

The first postcard is a reprint of a Christmas card from first half of 20th century.

The second is a recipe-card from 1973. Printed in Moscow as part of a postcard set “Dishes of Estonian kitchen”

The third, a New Year postcard from 1971, also features home-brewed beer in a wooden vessel. Artist E.Pikk, photo by V.Sillam.

The fourth card is also sausages and beer one and is produced by a collective of disabled people “Valve” (does the name of the collective mean just a female first name or is it a propaganda name “On guard”? I cannot make up my mind. Lack of context. I would not be so confused if the word appeared in connection with other words, like in tädi Valve/ aunt Valve or valvekoondis/guard collective ) was sent to my mother in December 1958
