The Pforzheim Album 16, The End
Only one card on the last page of the album, and, once again, a mystery. The writing is German, and for a change I can make it out. "Weihnachten" or hallowed nights is the observance of Christmas day. The date, "1935" is after the Nazis took over Germany. But the postcard has an English language back. Did this family get out of Germany while the getting was good, or where they refugees after the war? Was the photo taken in the United States, or was it from Germany, but printed much latter? Or, did a local German photographer get a good deal on postcard stock from overseas? Questions, questions, but no answers.
