acdh:hasDescription
Digital postcards of Friedrich Julius Bieber. The postcards were scanned, both from the front and the back with the color separation guide and gray scale.
The postcards of Friedrich Julius Bieber consist of postcards he sent to his family from various parts of Europe and Africa, as well as unsent postcards. Most were addressed to his wife Berta and their two sons, Friedrich and Otto. Friedrich Julius Bieber’s postcards are kept at the Austrian National Library. The postcards at the Austrian National Library are divided into two collections. One was donated by Otto Bieber and consists of 142 items, including 141 postcards sent when he traveled to Ethiopia in 1904, 1905 and 1909, and one unsent postcard (“Ansichtskarten”, Cod.Ser.n. 24552). The other was donated by the grandson of F. J. Bieber, Klaus Bieber, in 2020 and consists of 587 items, including 352 postcards sent from 1884 to 1947, and 237 postcards that were never sent (“Ansichtskarten”, Cod.Ser.n. 61631). Large parts of the collection are postcards from his journeys to Ethiopia in 1904, 1905 and 1909, and from Igls near Innsbruck (Tyrol, Austria) in 1917. It also includes postcards sent to Friedrich Julius Bieber by his relatives and friends. There is one postcard sent by his father to his mother in 1884, and there are those sent by his sons after his death, to friends of their father still connected to Africa.
F. J. Bieber’s short and concise messages on the postcards were written in German using Kurrentschrift, an old form of German-language handwriting, which was mainly used until the middle of the twentieth century in German-speaking areas. Most of the messages express concern about his family or report on his daily activities. The messages and designs on the picture postcards will show us Friedrich Julius Bieber’s personal characteristics, and his journeys. The collection gives us clues to understanding the society, customs, social trends, cultures and peoples of Europe and northeast Africa, especially Ethiopia, at the beginning of the twentieth century. The postcards are original historical materials for modern history and will help us to understand the people portrayed on these postcards.
