Can You Guess the Story?

Tuesday, 12/1/09

While continuing to work on the Allen collection I came across a curious set of cards. The cards were numbered in a series and each series seemed to tell some kind of moral story. Since the text is in German we had a lot of fun trying to guess what the story was just based on the illustrations. Tara O'Brien, our Director of Preservation and Conservation Services and resident German speaker/expert clued us in as to what these were and the stories they were telling, but we thought it would be fun to share these with our readers and see what you could come up with. So please, feel free to comment and share with us your guesses!

Series One:

Series Two (my personal favorite):

Series Three:

I expect Ms. O'Brien told you

I expect Ms. O'Brien told you that these are from Der Struwwelpeter, but I thought I'd mention it anyway, just to make sure.
