This real photo postcard is in pretty bad shape. However I thought it was interesting enough to purchase. I find foreign languages to be a mystery. Can anyone read this card? I had my Dad look at this car he thought it was an Overland..but I think it is foreign because the steering wheel is on the right. I like the ladies hats..do you suppose that this vehicle was a prop in the photographers studio?
Thanks for stopping by, do come again! :)
From Crex: The postcard is sent by one of the women in the picture. She has been sick. The man is her son, I think.
From Iggy: A very rough translation would be:
Here, I send ugly ghosts of me and my boy and Marie Darb to you.
