Winterswijk in old postcards

Internet genealogy is not just about names and dates. I like enhancing my family history with background information and illustrations. Much of this information can be found online. But websites like YouTube have added a new source: movies!

I happened to stumble upon the following movie which includes Winterswijk postcards. This is a beautiful compilation that shows Winterswijk in the first half of the 20th century. Enjoy!
